Grevillea ‘Misty Pink’

A fast growing medium shrub with deeply divided dark green foliage and large pink flowers with cream styles.  Peak flowering is late winter and spring, with some flowering for the rest of the year, bird attracting. One of the original and best large flowered Grevilleas, it makes a good feature or screening plant. It is fast growing, and can be severely pruned if needed. A hybrid between two Queensland varieties, at its best in warmer climates.

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.
