This is one of the most spectacular of the hybrid grevilleas, though unfortunately too tender for inland gardens. It grows quite large, probably at least 5 feet high by 10 feet wide, and has large light green, deeply dissected leaves. Blooming almost continuously, it carries spectacular comb-like, bright rose-red flower clusters along the stems. It should be presumed hardy only to 25 degrees F. Sun, well drained soil (usually the poorer, the better), and occasional to no supplemental watering when established. Many grevilleas are sensitive to phosphorus; never use high-phosphate fertilizers and, in general, feed them sparingly if at all.
