Grevillea ‘John Evans’

A compact small shrub growing to around a metre high and wide, it has narrow profuse leaves and a naturally dense habit, further improved by a once a year pruning. Flowers in late winter to spring with pink to red bird attracting blooms. Likes a well drained soil, best in a sunny spot but will also grow in light shade. Drought and frost tolerant once established. Feed with a low phosphorus fertiliser in spring.

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