Grevillea lanigera 'Coastal Gem' 4" pot

Coastal Gem Grevillea.  Copious amounts of pink flowers tinged with yellow make this an excellent low shrub for the landscape.  The arching habit lends itself as a groundcover or will soften the top of a retaining wall.  It flowers in flushes from spring to fall and is irresistible to hummingbirds.  One of the most cold hardy members of the Protea family.

(Proteaceae) 

Light: Full sun.

Water: Moderate. Very drought tolerant when established.  Make sure to water the first summer after planting.

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.
