Hakea erecta whole Hakea erecta close

Flowers in the Hakea genus can be small, tightly bunched Proteacaea type flowers like this one or have long pendulous Grevillea looking flowers. This one was not only a very attractive flower but more typical of the mainstream Hakea flowers whose photographs can be seen on Florabase. However change is on the way (possibly) for the taxonomy of Hakea and it has been suggested it will be absorbed into Grevillea eventually. The species name erecta refers to the long leaves which tend to stand erect.
