Grevillea 'Long John' 4" pot

Long John Grevillea.  Very nice, easy to grow shrub with long, thin, leathery leaves and succulent soft pink flowers.  It is a good bloomer and not prickly like some Grevilleas.  The leaves are soft and the branches arch gracefully making a medium shrub eventually reaching the size of 14 feet tall by 10 feet wide.

(Proteaceae)  G. johnsonii x G. longistyla

Light: Full sun.

Water: Moderate.  It is important to water in the summer when it is very dry.

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.
