G.Orange_marm.JPG (33852 bytes)Grevillea Orange Marmalade: is a member of the Proteaceae family and is a hybrid whose parents are Grevillea glossadenia and Grevillea venusta. Both parents are species that occur in Queensland.
Grevillea Orange Marmalade is a vigorous plant that may reach a height of 2.5 metres. The elliptical leaves have prominent veins and are about 13 centimetres long. The flowers are orange with red styles. Flowers are carried for many months. The flower colour is unusual in Australian native plants.
This is basically a plant for subtropical and tropical regions. We have a specimen growing in a sheltered position. It is not happy growing on our cold, windswept hill. In the right situation, “Orange Marmalade” may be used to create a dense screen. Both foliage and flowers are attractive features.
Propagate from cuttings.
