Grevillea crithmifolia is a shrub which is endemic to the south west region of Western Australia.[1]

It usually grows to between 0.6 and 2.5 metres in height and produces flowers between June and September (early winter to early spring) in its native range.[2] These are pink in bud, eventually becoming creamy white.[2]

The species was first formally described in Supplementum primum prodromi florae Novae Hollandiae in 1830 by botanist Robert Brown, the type specimen collected from the Swan River area.[3]
