An adaptable species that develops an upright, dense form; grows well in most well drained soils; salmon-pink spidery flower clusters emerge nearly year round and are good for cutting; deeply cut, ferny foliage adds great texture

Ornamental Features

Robyn Gordon Grevillea features showy clusters of salmon spider-like flowers with rose overtones at the ends of the branches from late winter to late fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has attractive dark green foliage which emerges chartreuse in spring. The deeply cut ferny leaves are highly ornamental and remain dark green throughout the winter. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Robyn Gordon Grevillea is an open multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting birds and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Robyn Gordon Grevillea is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • Rock/Alpine Gardens
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Robyn Gordon Grevillea will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It has a low canopy, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
