Upright shrub to 8 feet has grey-green, olive-like leaves. Clusters of spidery orange-red flowers are most profuse in spring, with scattered bloom in other seasons. Selected from a seedling batch of Grevillea victoriae by Marshall Olbrich at Western Hills Nursery for its cold hardiness and free flowering nature. 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.
