Grevillea "Robyn Gordon"

Grevillea 'Robyn Gordon' is a grevillea cultivar which has been planted widely in Australia and other countries.

It is a shrub that grows to two metres high and three metres wide, with divided leaves. The deep red inflorescences are about 15 cm long by 9 cm wide and attract honeyeaters.

The cultivar, was a chance cross between a red-flowered form of Grevillea banksii and G. bipinnatifida, selected by the late plant collector David Gordon in Queensland for its prolific and sustained flowering. Pruning is usually not required but plants can tolerate moderate to heavy pruning if necessary. A sunny, well drained position is preferable in the garden and plants are tolerant of at least moderate frost. Fertilisers containing phosphorus are best avoided.
