Grevillea ‘Flamingo’

A fast growing medium sized shrub with deeply divided dark green foliage. It has profuse large pink flowers all year round, making it a great source of food for nectar loving wildlife as well as a lovely garden feature. Can be used for cut flower use too.
Does well in most areas of Australia except for arid, and flowers best in a sunny spot. Grows to 3 to 4 metres high, and responds well to pruning, so good for screening and informal hedges. Feed in warm months with a good all purpose or native fertiliser.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT

Once you have found the plant that you want, the next step is to find where to get it. Nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may or may not have the wanted plant in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you.  Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you want, they can often suggest alternative plants that will be just as good for you.
