Grevillea 'Coconut Ice'
APPEARANCE: Native shrub with large pink and orange brushes during most of the year. It is frost hardy and requires little water once established. It prefers a full sun to part shade position.
USES: Grevilleas are loved by honey eaters, flocking to feed on the flowers at dusk and dawn. Ideal for use as a screen, hedge and feature plant.
PLANTING: Well drained clay loams or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH. Grevilleas can tolerate dry spells, suitable for reasonably cold temperatures and sub tropical climates.
CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Light pruning after flowering will promote dense growth. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser when buds form - grevilleas can be phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2 m H x 1.2 m W.
