Grevillea ‘Dorothy Gordon’

A large and also compact shrub that grows to 3 metres high and 2 metres wide, making it great for informal hedging and screening. It has large two toned flowers of pink and beautifully contrasting dark burgundy, and they make good cut flowers. It has flushes of flowers throughout the year, as well as bronzed new foliage growth, and is a magnet to honey eating birds and mammals. Drought tolerant and does well on a wide range of soil types. Performs best in a sunny spot with well drained soil, but can take light shade. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring.

Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas
