Beautiful native grevillea with delicate spidery flowers, always pink but variable as to the exact shade, and slender leaves which are pale underneath. Native bees absolutely adore it and we think you will too.
APPEARANCE : Native shrub naturally found on the central coast of NSW, which gets its name from the silky-hairy underside to the small slender leaves. Small curled pink-lilac flowers from autumn to spring. USE IN :Wildlife and native gardens as flowers attract nectar-feeding birds and insects; feature plant; for native bees and honey production; in coastal locations. LOCATION : Plant in well drained soil in a full sun in the garden. Tolerates drought and light frost once established. CARE : Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune after flowering to promote compact growth and prolific blooms during the next flowering season. 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 - 2m H x 1 - 2m W variable depending on location. 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.
