Compact low mounding grevillea, drought tolerant, ideal for rockeries and containers. Should do better on clay soils than many grevilleas. Birds will love the heaps of curly apricot flowers right through autumn and again in spring.
Grevillea juniperina x rhyolitica 'Sunkissed'APPEARANCE : A new compact ground cover Grevillea with a low mounding habit. Lots of small curly flowers in apricot-gold in Autumn and Spring.
ORIGIN : G juniperina is found in ACT, coastal southern QLD and NSW, and is the parent of many popular grevilleas including New Blood and Canterbury Gold; G rhyolitica comes from a small coastal area of NSW, in a wide range of habitats and environments, and is the parent of Deua Flame.
USE FOR: Lovely mass planting, groundcover, erosion control, in containers, or as a rockery plant. Great grevillea for attracting wildlife.
PLANTING: Plant in well drained soil, mulch well and water regularly until the plant is established. Apply a native plant fertiliser yearly. Prune after flowering to promote new growth and flowering.
CARE: Prefers a warm, sunny position in the garden and is relatively hardy once established. 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: 30 cm H x up to 75 cm 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.
