This was a chance seedling from Neil Bell’s garden in Monmouth Oregon and has been distributed by Xera Plants. They describe it as one of the finest Grevilleas that we grow and gave it its name. Can get to 8′ x 8′
This is a year round bloomer and right now in the middle of November it is blooming its heart out. Each inflorescence contains about 20 to 30 individual flowers that are fairly tightly bunched. They start as orange buds and then come out an orangey red. Leaves are lance shaped and have a gray-green coloration.
Like all of the Grevilleas, they like neglect – bad soil, no fertilizer, and no water once established. Loved by birds and bees and ignored by deer and rabbits. About the only care they want is to give them a slight prune in early summer to keep them more compact.
Easily propagated from stem cuttings
