Grevillea Canterbury Gold
Fast-growing low-mounding grevillea with spider flowers that nectar-feeding birds go crazy for. Great addition to the native and wildlife garden and such a lovely soft shade of buttery yellow. Tough and resilient in cold, humidity, sea breezes, dry spells and frost.
APPEARANCE : Dense, spreading shrub with small soft grey-green leaves and butter-yellow spider flowers throughout the year. Resilient and easy to maintain.
ORIGIN :G juniperina is found in ACT, coastal southern QLD and NSW, and is the parent of many popular grevilleas including New Blood
USE FOR : Wildlife gardens to attract nectar-feeding birds; in native gardens, as a feature shrub in mixed borders.
CLIMATE: Frost hardy, tolerates salt spray, dry periods and some humidity.
PLANTING : Grows in a well drained sandy or clay soil, with a neutral to acid pH, in shade or sun.
CARE : Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Light pruning after flowering will promote dense growth. Otherwise a very low-maintenance variety needing little attention. 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%.
MATURE HEIGHT & WIDTH : 1-1.5 M x 2-3 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. You can see an example in the image gallery
