Botany picture #214: Grevillea arenaria
Grevillea arenaria (Proteaceae) is described in the online flora of New South Wales as "red, pink or orange, often green or yellow at base", but if the label on this specimen in the Australian National Botanic Gardens is correct then it is surely quite on the green side. Perhaps a variant? Certainly the most unusual flower colour I have seen in this genus so far.
