Mini Marvel is one of those dainty small-flowered, fine-leaved grevilleas that our native birds and mammals love so much. It's easy for them to get to the nectar, and snuggle amongst the lacy foliage for protection. Neat and compact, the perfect size for a patio pot or the smallest of borders.
DESCRIPTION: Compact, low-growing native groundcover grevillea with dainty warm red flowers throughout the year, and fine lacy-ferny leaves. USES: Mass planting, groundcover, feature shrub, wildlife and native gardens. PLANTING: Grows in the wild in sandy heath that gets winter wet, but in gardens will grow in well-drained clay and loam too. Mulch well and water regularly until the plant is established. Apply a native plant fertiliser yearly. Prune lightly 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 during early spring when buds form - thelemanniana grevilleas are phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3% HEIGHT & WIDTH: 20 - 30 cm H x 0.5 - 1.2 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.
