Grevillea 'Audrey' 4" pot


Audrey Grevillea.  One of the more cold hardy of all members of the Protea family, this silvery shrub produces an almost steady display of bright orange flowers. Hummingbirds love them!  This is an extremely tough, large shrub that will grow to over 10' tall and wide and withstand a very stiff frost.  Such a great plant in an area that may not get regular summer irrigation.

(Proteaceae) Also known as Grevillea 'Poorinda Constance.'

Light: Full sun.

Water: Moderate.  Make sure to water the first year of planting, but it will be drought tolerant in subsequent years.

Soil: Fast draining, acid, and nutrient poor.  Be careful not to disturb the roots.

Fertilizer: Use a very low phosphorus (or no phosphorus), slow-release fertilizer, or a mild organic fertilizer such as fish emulsion.  Like all Proteaceae, it will not tolerate phosphorus.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 9, possibly 8b in a protected site.  This is one of the most hardy species in the Protea family and will tolerate a very stiff frost.
