Grevillea ‘Ivanhoe’


A spreading large sized shrub with very attractive toothed leaves and red toothbrush-like flowers in spring, summer and winter. Good general garden shrub for larger areas or as a screen plant that is regularly pruned. Makes a good cut foliage and flower plant. Like other grevilleas, it is bird attracting for the nectar rich flowers, and smaller birds like the cover that the dense foliage gives. Tolerant of heavy frost and drought, mildly alkaline to acid soil. Likes good drainage, but can take periods of dampness too. Grows to around 3-5 metres high and wide.
