Grevillea xiphoidea Olde & Marriott

Grevillea xiphoidea is a shrub of the genus Grevillea native to an area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.[1]


The erect shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 3 metres (3.3 to 9.8 ft) and has glaucous branchlets. It has dissected tripartite leaves that are deeply divided to midvein. The leaves have a blade that is 25 to 45 millimetres (0.98 to 1.77 in). It blooms between June to September and produces an axillary or terminal raceme regular inflorescence with white or cream flowers with white or cream styles. Later it forms smooth, oblong or ellipsoidal, glabrous fruit that are 6 to 9 mm (0.2 to 0.4 in) long.[1]

The species was first formally described by the botanists, Peter M. Olde and Neil R. Marriott, in 1994 as a part of the work New names and combinations in Grevillea (Proteaceae: Grevilleoideae) as published in the Grevillea Book.[2] The species has one synonym, Hakea xiphoidea (Olde & Marriott) Christenh. & Byng.[3]

The shrub has a limited distribution in the Shire of Merredin and the Shire of Narembeen and is found mostly to the north and east of the town of Narembeen.[1]
