Grevillea pectinata, commonly known as comb-leaf grevillea, is a shrub in the family Proteaceae. It is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia.[2]

It has a spreading habit and usually grows to between 0.5 and 2.5 metres in height. The red or pink flowers appear in terminal racemes throughout the year.[2][3]

The species was first formally described by botanist Robert Brown in 1830 in Supplementum primum prodromi florae Novae Hollandiae.[1]
