Grevillea ‘Canberra Gem’

Proteaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

GREVILLEA

This plant group generally has fine-textured foliage and long, slender, curved flowers, usually borne in dense clusters. Many cannot tolerate salt-laden soils, poor water quality, heavy summer irrigation, or heavy frost, but all are attractive enough to warrant some risk taking. Like other members of the protea family, they are sensitive to high levels of phosphorus in the soil. Fertilize lightly and avoid high-phosphorus fertilizers.

Grevillea ‘Canberra Gem’

Open, graceful growth to 8 ft. tall and 12 ft. wide. Needlelike, bright green, 1-in. leaves. Clusters of red flowers in winter and spring (and intermittently at other times). Full sun or partial shade.
