Grevillea ‘Scarlet Moon’

A lovely new cultivar with striking large red flowers produced all year round on a medium sized shrub. The flowers are loved by nectar feeding birds, and contrast beautifully with the pale buds and ferny foliage. Good for subtropical to warm temperate climates. Likes well drained soils and a sunny aspect. A good easy care plant that can be used as a feature plant, informal hedging and to attract native wildlife to the garden. A light prune after the main flowering will encourage an even more dense habit.
