Murray Valley Queen Grevillea
An absolutely stunning evergreen winter flowering shrub from the coldest parts of Australia! Orange flowers look like psychedelic spiders hanging just beneath the handsome silvery green foliage and emerge throughout the year but most heavily in winter and spring. A true delight for hummingbirds. Requires full sun in well draining unamended soils. Avoid all phosphorous! Murray Valley Queen Grevillea has proven surprisingly hardy so far in our particularly cold pocket of SE Portland.
