Grevillea "Pryors Hybrid" A lovely rounded dense evergreen shrub with thin green leaves and masses of bright red and cream flowers. Brings in the nectar feeding birds and is great for the smaller animals to use for protection because of its prickly nature.
Perfect for the low maintenance garden as once established has low watering needs. Suits most well drained soil, in full sun to part shade. Prune after flowering to help maintain shape and promote new growth.
Makes a lovely informal hedge, screening plant, scattered through the garden or 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.
