Grevillea repens (Creeping Grevillea) is a prostrate shrub which is endemic to Victoria, Australia.[2]

It grow to 3 metres in diameter. [2] Flowers appear between October and April (mid spring to mid autumn) in its native range.[2] These have perianths which are light green or grey and green-tipped styles that are otherwise deep burgundy in colour or, less commonly, dull pink, yellow or green.[2]

G. repens occurs in montane eucalypt forests in two discrete populations with distinct forms , one in west Healesville (G. repens 'Mt Slide form') and the other in Daylesford known as G. repens 'Daylesford form' or G. repens 'Sailors Falls' .[2]

The species was first formally described by botanist Ferdinand von Mueller in 1854, his description published in in Linnaea.[1]
