Grevillea ‘Red Hooks’

 

A useful large shrub for informal hedging and screening, with its dense growth habit and ability to grow in most soils and climates. It has near year round spot flowering, with extra bursts in winter and spring, with red toothbrush form flowers. It responds well to pruning to keep it even more compact.

It can be known as G. hookeriana  but is suspected to be a hybrid from G. longifolia x G. tetragonoloba.
