Grevillea longistyla x venusta 'Fire Sprite'

APPEARANCE:  Vigourous, fast-growing, adaptable shrub, with an upright habit, long stems, and fine feathery green leaves. Bright orange-red flame-coloured flowers appear in spring.
ORIGIN : G venusta originates in central QLD, around Rockhampton; G longistyla is a QLD grevillea found in the wild on rocky sandstone.

CLIMATE: Tolerates light frost, some dry spells, humid or dry climates from the southern coasts to subtropical QLD
PLANTING: Hardy in a moist well drained soil in full sun.
CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Light pruning after flowering will promote dense growth and encourage 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%.
