Grevillea

Grevillea victoriae ‘Marshall Olbrich’ full sun  partial shade

Though this superior evergreen form was selected at Western Hills Nursery in California, the species hails from both Australia and South America and is thought to be 130 million years old.

Silky gray upright twigs are attractively cloaked in long, silver-hued Willow-like leaves. Dangling from fast growing arching stems and favored by hummingbirds, the large showy clusters feature beak-shaped buds and richly hued, orange-red Honeysuckle-style flowers autumn through winter and sporadically throughout the year.

One of the hardiest Grevillea cultivars, it can accompany Mahonia ‘Charity’ in a warm well-drained slightly dry spot.

Blooms September – March.

Size: 6' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
