Plant views: Grevillea flowers
Grevilleas show the curious characteristic of brush like flowers often seen in Australian plants.
This group of woody plants offer some fascinating, colorful and highly ornamental flowering shrubs. There are some that grow tree-like to fifteen feet in ideal conditions, many that form medium-sized bushes, and a few that hug low to the ground, making attractive ground covers. The varieties shown here are some of the most cold resistant Grevilleas, braving temperatures into the 20′s Fahrenheit.
These plants come in a wide range of single or blended flower colors and leaves tend to be short and simple or flat and deeply cut.
The majority are frost shy. Like so many Australian plants, Grevilleas are drought-tolerant and do not like phosphorus in the soil.
