Over the last 50 years or so native gardening has surged ahead in popularity and is gaining the respect it deserves, not only for its beauty and uniqueness but the qualities of low maintenance, low demand for water and fertilisers and offering food and shelter for our wildlife. Variation between native foliage is vast, with planning you can have spectacular flowers throughout the year, and you can add the delicious scent of the Australian bush to your garden.

Grafted Grevilleas

Trees and Plants > Native Plants > Grafted Grevilleas

Grevillea sp.
Helen Howard of Grevillea Heritage has been grafting Grevilleas and other genera - Eremophila, Brachychiton, Eucalyptus, Verticordia and Casuarina, as well as Olives and Cashews, for over 15 years. She has a passion for the Grevillea species and hopes to educate people about the benefits of growing them in their gardens. She regularly gives talks to garden clubs about planting, pruning and of course, grafting! By planting Grevilleas we have birds, colour and atmosphere in our gardens! By grafting these beautiful Grevilleas onto Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta) we give them a chance to survive for longer, to withstand disease, and to be resistant towards frosts so that they can perform at their best. Most of the Grevilleas thrive by being grafted and we now can successfully propagate many lovely Grevilleas from all states of Australia. Helen's passion is to continue to propagate the rarer species along with the hybrids well deserved of a place in gardens. If all Australians grow at least one species endemic to their area there would be less chance of a particular species being lost to the plant world forever. Recently some fairly ordinary hybrids have appeared in nurseries and some even have given the genus a bad name. Helen believes we should trial plants seriously before we release them onto the market. There are many beautiful species that will flower almost all year round which we should be promoting and encouraging people to grow. Grevilleas do best by giving them an annual pruning for shape, health, and extra flowers. It would be great not to have to provide artificial food for birds and allow them to gorge themselves on the natural supply in our gardens. Little wrens just love the prickly Grevilleas and each garden should have at least one prickly plant, giving a home for small birds to hide from predators.

Trees and Plants > Native Plants > Grevilleas

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.
