Grevillea corrugata is a shrub which is endemic to an area near Bindoon in the south west of Western Australia. It grows to between 0.5 and 1.5 metres in height .[1]

It has deeply lobed leaves. The ultimate lobes have curved margins and are 1.5 to 3 cm long and 0.7 to 0.8 mm wide. The white or cream flowers appear from August to September (late winter to early spring) in its native range.[1]
