Trees of Bangalore - Grevillea robusta - Silver Oak Tree: Reaching a height of 75 feet or more with a 25-foot spread, Silver Oak is pyramidal to oval in shape, eventually developing a few heavy horizontal limbs and a thick trunk.
It is a fast growing evergreen tree, between 18-35 m tall with dark green delicately dented bipinnatifid leaves reminiscent of a fern frond. These leaves are generally 15-30 cm long with silvery undersides. Its flowers are golden-orange bottlebrush-like blooms, between 8-15 cm long, in the spring, on a 2-3 cm long stem. A great quantity of leaves fall in the spring immediately preceding the emergence of new growth and leaves also fall sporadically throughout the year, creating quite a litter problem to some people. Black, leathery seed capsules follow the flowers.
Very nice pictures ... I have this tree in full blooms at present in front of my kitchen window.
The flowers are liked by many many bird species.
I saw lots of 'rose colored starlings' on these trees few days back.
Wonderful clear pictures ...! I had tried to take some pictures of silver oak flowers today but struggled to get a decent picture. What camera did you use? What kind of zoom?
Below are the best pictures I could manage- even after some post processing. Shot these in Frazer Town. Used a Fuji FinepixHS10 which has 30x zoom (it is not a D-SLR). I think I am not able to focus correctly on the flowers which are somewhat low contrast compared to the surroundings.
I have a Cannon Sx120 which has 10x Zoom

These silver oaks are in bloom in the lower town where I went on a drive yesterday.
They are quite an imposing sight on the road verges.
