Grevillea sericea - silky Grevillea

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.
