Hi Carole,

For the best results, search using the botanical name (in this case Grevillea wickhamii). This gives you only the one result, as your saw in your last screenshot:

Holly-Leaf Grevillea (Grevillea wickhamii)

If you're not certain of the plant ID first, though, best to post the photo and question in the Plant ID forum.

You're welcome, Carole.

Just to clarify, if it's definitely Grevillea wickhamii, then the link I posted is appropriate. If it's only been identified as a Holly Grevillea, though, then you'll need more information to determine which species it is.

With the exception of a listing on e-bay, I couldn't find G. wickhamii listed anywhere with the common name of Holly-leaf Grevillea, Holly Leaf Grevillea or even Holly Grevilla ... only Wickham's Grevilla.

Maybe the common name of Holly-leaf should be added so that G. wickhamii will come up in future searches for Holly Leaf?

yes, I believe so but I wasn't sure if I could just go ahead and do that on my own behalf. Just had wanted to put it by the moderators first.

Go ahead and add the other common name. Please be aware that common names are initial capped. This applies to the components of hyphenated names as well, so it should be Holly-Leaf Grevillea, not Holly-leaf Grevillea.

Carole, you just proposed the addition of this plant as a new entry (twice). We already have an entry for the plant.

Holly-Leaf Grevillea (Grevillea wickhamii)

You should be proposing a name edit, not the addition of a new plant. Open the link, scroll down to "Edit plant name," and click on that phrase to open the proposal form. In the Common Name field, click on the green icon to create a new line, and type Holly-Leaf Grevillea on that line. Then click on "Submit your proposed changes." The proposal then will be either approved or declined by one of the admins.
