Grevillea ‘Jester’ is a moderately dense spreading shrub. The fern-like leaves are green above and much paler below. It grows to 3 metres tall and 4 metres wide. Great as a feature plant for rockeries and shrubberies. An unusual feature for a grevillea is the light fruity-rose fragrance to the tangerine coloured flowers. Attractive to butterflies and birds, and it flowers all year round.
Grow in a well drained soil in full sun for the best performance. It has a naturally dense habit, and it can be pruned to shape if desired. Withstands moderate frost and drought.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
