Grevillea sericea – Silky Grevillea

An attractive and easy care medium sized shrub which flowers over many months from autumn through winter and on into spring. The flowers are spider shaped and pink, and are attractive to bees. An adaptable plant for sun to part shade, prefers well drained soils. Can be left to grow on its own where it will form an attractive informal shape, but also responds well to regular pruning for a more compact habit.  It naturally grows on the NSW central coast area, and inland to Mudgee.
