Grevillea Robyn Gordon
Flashy large dark red brush flowers throughout most of the year, above a medium sized shrub to 1.5m. Classic well-known variety, good all-rounder for native and mixed Australian gardens anywhere but the tropical north and snowfields. Great value garden plant.
APPEARANCE : Dusky dark red flowers, large in size, appear throughout most of the year, flowering more heavily in late winter and spring. Native shrub with dense toothed foliage.
USE FOR: Loved by honey eaters, flocking to feed on the flowers at dusk and dawn. Ideal for use as a screening or feature plant. Very long flowering period.
CLIMATE: Will grow in most areas of Australia, except for the tropics and snowfields. Hard frosts may burn soft new growth but light frosts will not damage the plant.
PLANTING: Well drained clay loams or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH. Frost hardy and requires little water once established. 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 flowering and 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%.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1.5 m H x 1.5 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.
