Superb.JPG (27958 bytes)Grevillea Superb: is another sub-tropical Grevillea hybrid (see also Moonlight). It is said to be the result of a liaison between Grevillea bipinnatifida and a white flowered form of Grevillea banksii. Superb is similar in appearance to Grevillea Robyn Gordon and in ideal conditions will develop into a dense, mounded shrub. Because of our “less than tropical” climate, our Superb has developed into an upright shrub with rather sparse foliage. The foliage may be sparse but the flowers are magnificent. They are pinkish-yellow, ageing to deep pink. Flowering is almost continuous and the nectar rich blooms attract honeyeaters.
Propagation must be from cuttings to preserve Superb’s desirable characteristics.
