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.

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.
