CLIMATE: Tolerates dry periods once established. Frost tolerant. Happier in dry climates than humid ones.
PLANTING : Plant in well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Avoid wet mulch as the leaves resting above it may brown, using a dry mulch such as pebbles or chunky bark will help to avoid this in humid climates.
CARE : Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. 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%.
