Red Hooks Grevillea
Grevillea 'Red Hooks'
|Description||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.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally.|
|Blooms||Heaviest in late winter to spring|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 8 to 12 feet tall and 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. Prune in late spring after flowering to shape and reduce size if desired.|
|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.|
