Grevillea Moonlight is one of the best grevilleas….it is tough and adaptable and also flowers all year round. It is great as a feature plant due to its flower power but also makes an effective informal screen or hedge. Also a great cut flower and bird attracting. The flowers are produced in groups at the ends of the branches, so as each group of flowers finishes it is best to trim off that whole shoot behind the spent flower heads. A fantastic grevillea choice, especially for warmer climates. Feed a with low phospohorus native fertilizer in spring or summer, watering in well afterwards.
Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas

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.
