Grevillea Lavandulacea "Billy Wings"  A beautiful low growing Grevillea, forming a dense cover growing 30cm high and up to 1m wide. It has attractive green, grey foliage that becomes covered in a brilliant display of red spider flowers in late Winter and Spring.

A lovely addition for the low maintenance or coastal garden. The Dark foliage is a beautiful contrast to the masses of red flowers, its a real eye catcher and  attracts the nectar feeding birds.

Prefers well-drained soil in a sunny or partly shaded position.  Great for native or cottage gardens, rockeries, boarders, scattered through the garden and looks fantastic in a decorative pot.



Planting
: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.

Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted. 

Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a low phosphorus fertiliser.



Using tubestock is a great advantage for planting in your garden as they will establish quickly with the appropriate care.

Plants are supplied as tubestock in 42mm wide pots. Your plant will be established in its pot and ready to plant out.
