Grevillea ‘Ivanhoe’

 

A spreading large sized shrub with very attractive toothed leaves and red toothbrush-like flowers in spring, summer and winter. Good general garden shrub for larger areas or as a screen plant that is regularly pruned. Makes a good cut foliage and flower plant. Like other grevilleas, it is bird attracting for the nectar rich flowers, and smaller birds like the cover that the dense foliage gives. Tolerant of heavy frost and drought, mildly alkaline to acid soil. Likes good drainage, but can take periods of dampness too. Grows to around 3-5 metres high and wide.

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.
