The erect shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 2 metres (3.3 to 6.6 ft) and has glaucous branchlets. It has dissected subpinnatisect leaves with a blade that is 50 to 80 millimetres (2.0 to 3.1 in). It blooms between September and November and produces an axillary or terminal raceme irregular inflorescence with white or cream flowers with white styles. Later it forms viscid ellipsoidal glabrous fruit that are 5 to 7 mm (0.2 to 0.3 in) long.[1]

The species was first described in 1994 by the botanists P.M. Olde and N.R. Marriott as a part of the work New names and combinations in Grevillea (Proteaceae: Grevilleoideae) as published in The Grevillea Book.[2]

It has as limited distribution mostly in an area to the north west of Kalgoorlie but also near Yilgran, Perenjori and Coorow. It is often situated on and among ironstone hills growing in stony and loamy soils.[1]
