DESCRIPTION: Compact growing native with large nectar-rich brushes in shades of pink and yellow. USE IN: Wildlife and native gardens - Grevilleas are loved by honey eaters flocking to feed on the flowers. Ideal in rockeries; suited to container planting. Versatile-size feature shrub. LOCATION: Plant in a partly shaded to full sun position to get the longest flowering period. Ensure soil is well composted and drains freely. Grevilleas can tolerate dry spells, suitable for reasonably cold temperatures and sub tropical climates. CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Light pruning after flowering will promote dense growth. Tolerates dry periods and light frost once established. 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%. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1-1.5m H 1m 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.
