Grevillea 'Scarlet Sprite'

Proteaceae
Evergreen, Flowers

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 'Scarlet Sprite'

Grows to 3–5 ft. tall and wide, with bright green,needlelike leaves. Bright red,spidery flowers appear almostyear round. Takes well to shearing; good low hedge. Full sun or partial shade.
