Grevillea longifolia x willisii 'Poorinda Anticipation'
APPEARANCE: Anticipation is a dense, native shrub grevillea with long spreading branches of dissected foliage, purplish-red new growth; and dainty pink toothbrush flowers during spring.
USE IN; Grevilleas are loved by honey eaters, flocking to feed on the flowers at dusk and dawn. Ideal for use as a hedge or feature plant.
LOCATION: Well drained clay loam or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH. Grevilleas can tolerate dry spells, suitable for reasonably cold temperatures and sub tropical climates. It is frost hardy and requires little water once established. This grevillea prefers a full sun to part shade position.
CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Light pruning after flowering will promote dense growth. 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%. Hard prune at least once a year.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2-2.5 m H x 2.5-3 m W.
