Grevillea leucopteris, also known as Old Socks or White Plume Grevillea, is a shrub which is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. It grows up to 5 metres in height and produces white or cream unpleasantly-scented flowers between July and January (mid winter to mid summer) in its native range.

[This – the opportunity to pay respects to our beloved Ned – may well be the one upside to being stuck in Melbs waiting for a bleedin’ plane to Bali. n(Ed)]
