Grevillea hookeriana, also known as the Hooker's Grevillea, is a medium to large-sized shrub that is native to Australia. 

The plant is named after Sir William Jackson Hooker, an English botanist who was a prominent figure in the study of Australian plants during the 19th century. It has distinctive red, spider-like flowers that bloom in winter and spring, and these are a favorite of nectar-feeding birds.

Grevillea hookeriana has fine, needle-like foliage that is green-gray in color. The plant prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is drought-tolerant once established and can tolerate moderate frost.

Regular pruning is recommended to encourage bushiness and promote new growth. Prune back any dead or damaged branches as soon as you notice them, and remove any growth that is blocking sunlight from reaching the interior of the plant. You can also prune the plant to control its size and shape, but be careful not to remove too much foliage at once, as this can stress the plant.

Overall, Grevillea hookeriana is a hardy and attractive plant that can add a unique touch to any garden or landscape. It is a great choice for those looking for a low-maintenance plant with year-round interest.
