Grevillea "Little Drummer Boy" A mass of red/cream, spider shaped flowers which makes for a stunning display, are produced from autumn through winter on this long flowering evergreen spreading shrub. A real delight for the nectar feeding birds.
A lovely addition to the native/cottage garden because of the low maintenance, drought hardy once established.
Fantastic for banks, rockeries, groundcover, scattered through the garden or in a decorative pot.
Tolerates a large range of soils with good drainage, full sun and coastal conditions.
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.
