Grevillea 'White Wings' 4" pot


White Wings Grevillea.  One of the more cold hardy of all members of the Protea family, this is a very striking barrier plant.  Fern-like foliage and powder-puff white flowers are loved by hummingbirds!  Makes a good refuge for birds also. 

(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.
