The first known examples of grevilleas in cultivation were collected on Cook’s voyage to Australia in 1770. They were initially, and unofficially, given the genus name “Leucadendroides” because of the plant’s similarity to Leucadendron. Early botanists then reclassified grevilleas as belonging to the genus, “Embothrium”.

Eventually the name “Grevillea” was established, after Charles Francis Greville, a British member of parliament, and one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK.
