Grevillea ‘Robyn Gordon’

One of the most popular of all grevilleas due to its compact growth habit,  all year round flowering and no fuss nature. It makes a great bird attracting feature shrub that is adaptable to a very wide range of soil types and climatic conditions. Trim off the spent flower heads as they start to look shabby. Feed in spring and summer with a good native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn.
