Grevellias are native to Australia and there are many species and hybrids that will do well in a California garden, with new varieties introduced all the time. This particular one is a natural hybrid between two species from the Blue Mountains of Australia. Spreading about 10 feet wide.

Does well in well-drained soil with bright light and little to no organic matter. ***Do not fertilize with phosphorus. Red flowers occur throughout the year but are concentrated in winter. Leaves are deeply lobed like an oak tree and new leaves will be red in cool months.
