Floral Emblem

Hurstville City Council has adopted the Grevillea sericea as its floral emblem. Council consulted with seven local organisations before  adopting this floral emblem at a meeting on 18 February 1981.  

Grevillea sericea is a member of the Proteaceae family and is also known as the 'Pink Spider Flower'.  It is an upright shrub which reaches a height of 1.5 metres.  The leaves are elliptic to linear in shape and from two to six centimetres long.  Flowers are borne in erect, terminal clusters and carried for most of the year.  They are usually pink, but some plants have white blooms.
