Grevillea

Grevillea

A diverse group of plants -- ranging from ground-hugging evergreen shrubs to stately trees -- grevilleas are beloved for their spidery blooms that have a pleasing, sweet fragrance. These subtropical and tropical shrubs and trees sport a variety of foliage forms. Species with needlelike foliage are especially useful for adding interest to a planting of palms or other tropical plants with big leaves. Broad-leaf grevilleas are a welcome addition to any planting area. Grevillea foliage color ranges from yellow-green to medium and dark green. Bloom colors include white, pink, yellow, and orange.

Grevillea grows best in full sun and well-drained soil. Most varieties succumb to frost. If frost is a threat, plant grevillea near a building for protection. Be careful not to overwater. Watering in summer is especially detrimental. Water sparingly in fall, winter, and spring. Nature will provide most of the water grevillea needs.
