THE HAKEINAE IN HORTICULTURE
The Hakeinae, a subtribe of Embothrieae, Proteaceae, consists of five genera, Buckinghamia, Opisthiolepis, Grevillea, Hakea and Finschia. The genera are discussed with respect to their suitability for horticulture and commerce. Particular reference is made to Buckinghamia celcissima, some new Grevillea cultivars, Grevillea Goliath and Grevillea Bulli Beauty and the Western Australian species (Grevillea eriobotrya) recently introduced to commercial use as cut flowers and garden subjects. Some observations are made on older cultivars, fertility, their cultivation, maintenance, breeding and utility as cut flowers or foliage.
