Grevillea pteridifolia x banksii 'Honey Gem'

APPEARANCE : Fast growing, tall, dense, native tree with large finely divided silvery-green foliage. Long-lasting very large golden orange-yellow flowers.
ORIGIN :Grevillea pteridifolia (manbulu, yawuny, tjummula) is unusually native to Northern Australia, from the Kimberleys of WA across NT to outback QLD. Unlike most grevilleas it prefers a 'reverse' climate of hot wet summers and dry winters. It is the parent of Sandra Gordon, which has smaller, denser, brighter yellow flowers.
USE FOR : This free standing specimen is great for avenue plantings and as a feature tree. It is honey laden and great for attracting native birds. Foliage is attractive all year round.
CLIMATE : Suitable for reasonably cold temperatures, light overnight frosts, and happy in sub tropical and tropical climates. Doesn’t mind occasional dry spells.
PLANTING : Likes full sun and semi-shade. Well drained clay loams or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH.
CARE : Fertilise with native fertiliser early spring and at planting. Cut back to such as required but not too much.
MATURE HEIGHT & WIDTH : 4 - 5m H x 2 - 3m W.
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.
You can see an example in the image gallery.
