Grevillea ‘Red Hooks’

 

A useful large shrub for informal hedging and screening, with its dense growth habit and ability to grow in most soils and climates. It has near year round spot flowering, with extra bursts in winter and spring, with red toothbrush form flowers. It responds well to pruning to keep it even more compact.

It can be known as G. hookeriana  but is suspected to be a hybrid from G. longifolia x G. tetragonoloba.

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.
