Grevillea ‘Moonlight’

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.
