Kings Rainbow Grevillea
Grevillea x 'Kings Rainbow' PP #27,931
|Description||Exotic, bright red and yellow bicolor racemes on a durable, heat and drought tolerant evergreen with deep green, fine-textured, needle-like foliage and a semi-upright growth habit. A great low maintenance shrub that is well-adapted to warm coastal and adjacent inland areas. Great for use as a barrier, a hedge plant, or erosion control on slopes and banks.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally.|
|Blooms||Nearly year-round in warm winter regions.|
|Mature Size||Upright, mounding growth reaches 5 to 6 ft. tall, 6 to 8 ft. wide.|
|Care||Adapts to a variety of soils with excellent drainage; prefers loamy, gravelly, lightly acidic soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system, taking care not to overwater. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Feed sparingly in spring; avoid high phosphorus fertilizers.|
|Lore||Gevilleas' evolved flowers are specifically adapted to pollenation by the honeyeater bird with its curved beak, which means plants remain sterile in all regions outside this bird's natural habitat.|
