Red Hooks Grevillea

Grevillea 'Red Hooks'

A fast growing, vase-shaped, upright shrub with fishbone leaves and unique, brush-shaped red flowers. Blooms intermittently throughout the year, but heaviest in late winter to spring. Tough, drought resistant, and well-adapted to warm coastal and adjacent inland areas. Great for use as a barrier, screening or as a stand-alone specimen, and will take easily to slopes and banks.
