is a member of the Proteaceae family and is a hybrid whose parents are said to
be Grevillea shiressii and Grevillea oleoides.
Grevillea Splendour is a very hardy shrub reaching a height and width
of 1.5 metres. The narrow, lance-like leaves are blue-green and six
centimetres long. Plants carry clusters of red flowers for most of the year.
Birds are attracted to the flowers.
Prune regularly to maintain dense growth.
We have a number of specimens in our gardens and they have proved to be
drought resistant, frost tolerant and free flowering. Both foliage and flowers
are attractive features.
Propagation must be from cuttings to maintain its desirable characteristics.
