Grevillea Honey barbara
Grevilleas are some of Australia's favourite flowering shrubs and trees. Ranging from sprawling ground covers to the towering emergent Silky Oak, Grevillea robusta, the flowers of this genus attract and feed an enormous number of birds and insects throughout the year. They are part of an ancient plant family Protaceae, adapted to poor soil and dry conditions, so they are hardy and easy-to-maintain additions to any garden. Colours range from whites to yellows,oranges,reds and even purple. Many species flower through the cool months, brightening up a winter landscape. They can be used for hedging or display specimens on their own. Its not only the flowers that are attractive, but their often distinctive, divided foliage. Plant some today, you won't regret it.
