Grevillea ‘Mallee Splendid’

An attractive compact small Grevillea, growing to 1 to 2 metres high and wide. It flowers in winter through spring with bright red and yellow nectar rich flowers. An easy care plant which is tolerant of dry spells and frost. A light prune after flowering will give an even more compact growth habit. Best in a sunny spot in well drained soil. Feed with a low phosphorus fertiliser in spring.
