ORIGIN : Rainforests of northern QLD
USE FOR: Plant as a small shade tree or feature tree. Attracts wildlife. Leaves are grown for cut foliage.
CLIMATE: Tolerates moderate frost. Grows from Victoria as far north as Cooktown so very adaptable as to climate.
PLANTING: Plant in well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Roots may become invasive so avoid planting near pipes or foundations.
CARE: Maintenance free once established. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune as desired to promote dense growth habit and flowering. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser when buds form - grevilleas can be phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%

YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
