Grevillea Obtusifolia "Gingin Gem" is a spreading, small shrub with small red spider flowers produced during Winter and Spring. This densely foliage shrub is an ideal groundcover for embankments and rockeries which brings Winter colour to the garden and is drought tolerant once established.
Prune regularly to keep habit dense and if you decide to plant into a decorative pot, Gingin Gem will make a stunning display were the plant will cascade over the pot. A lovely addition to the native cottage garden where the flowers attract nectar feeding birds.
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
