Description

Grevillea "Loopy Lou", a radiant cross between Grevillea bipinnatifida x banksii var. fosteri, paints gardens with a symphony of yellow, orange, and red flowers that burst forth year-round. This medium shrub doesn't just offer visual appeal; its vivid blossoms are a magnet for native birds, ensuring your space hums with life and colour throughout the seasons.

For "Loopy Lou" to flourish, planting it in the ground is key, and a soil conditioner will significantly benefit those with sandy terrains. Its innate Australian toughness shines once established, boasting admirable drought tolerance. To keep its vibrancy at peak, a touch of low-phosphorus native fertiliser during Djilba (early spring) is all it asks for.
