Grevillea hybrid 'Fanfare'

Proteaceae
Evergreen, Ground covers, 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 hybrid 'Fanfare'

Thought to be a hybrid involving Grevillea x gaudichaudii. Like that parent, it is low and spreading, to 1 ft. tall and 10 to 15 ft. wide. Narrow, sawtoothed leaves up to 7 in. long are coppery red and covered with silky hairs when young, maturing to dark green. Toothbrush-like flowers in deep red appear winter to spring. Excellent tough, fast-growing ground cover; tip prune after flowering to keep dense. Full sun or partial shade.
