Grevillea ‘White Wings’

Proteaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs, 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 ‘White Wings’

Shrub. Grows to 6–9 ft. tall and spreads to 10–15 ft. wide, with finely divided, bright green leaves. Masses of fragrant white flowers appear in spring, with a scattering at other times. Good for bank or slope planting. Full sun or partial shade.
