Grevillea is a large genus containing many species, forms and hybrids bearing inflorescences with desirable cut flower characteristics. Nineteen different Grevillea spp. and forms (7), and 39 hybrids (including 11 repeat collections) were assessed for vase life. Longevity varied 3-fold, from 3 days for G. wickhamii to 9 days for a G. whiteana accession. Species with comparatively long vase lives included G. pteridifolia, G. sessilis and G. whiteana. These genotypes may be useful for cut flower production and/or in breeding programs aimed at producing new cut flower Grevillea.
