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.

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
