Grevillea pteridifolia x Grevillea sessilis 'Sandra Gordon'

APPEARANCE : Old favourite large-size grevillea, open in habit. Large fine ferny leaves which emerge gold, and big bright yellow flowers. which are more toothbrush in shape than the similar Bush Lemons variety. Fast growing into a shrub or small tree. Named in honour of his daughter by David Gordon, founder of Myall Park Botanic Garden, and one of the earliest hybrid native plants to be registered
ORIGIN :Grevillea pteridifolia (manbulu, yawuny, tjummula) is unusually native to Northern Australia, from the Kimberleys of WA across NT to outback QLD. Unlike most grevilleas it prefers a 'reverse' climate of hot wet summers and dry winters. It is the parent of Honey Gem, which has larger, open, deeper yellow flowers. G sessilis is a FNQ QLD native with creamy flowers from early winter to summer
USE FOR :  Suited to erosion control, coastal planting, wildlife gardens, native gardens.
CLIMATE: Tolerates pollution so would make a good street-side tree. Tolerates dry periods, poor soils once established. Based on its parentage, will be happy in tropical regions; may need protection from frosts
PLANTING: Plant in full sun for maximum flowering. Prefers free draining soil.
CARE: Water regularly during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Prune after flowering to promote flowering, dense habit and control growth. A hard prune each 3-4 years will result in a fresh flush of flowers and foliage.  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: 3-5m H x 2-4m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
