RSL Spirit of Anzac Grevillea Hybrid

Posted on 2015

This new variety of Grevillea bred by Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, to commemorate the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli and the many other conflicts since then.

The ‘RSL Spirit of ANZAC’ Grevillea was selected for its lush bird attracting red flowers that appear from autumn to summer and its trans - Australian heritage and the tough geographical conditions in which it grows and thrives. This variety will thrive in well drained soils and is very drought tolerant.

Once established it will grow and flower well with twice weekly irrigation over summer and rainfall during the winter months
