The Grevillea "Ned Kelly", a distinct cultivar of Grevillea banksii x bipinnatifida 'Upright Form', proudly sports a radiant palette of red, orange, and yellow flowers that light up gardens year-round. Recognised also as "Mason's Hybrid", this medium-sized shrub doesn't just steal gazes with its vibrant display; it's a favourite haunt for native birds, making your garden a lively spectacle. Providing not only beauty, but it also introduces a hint of the Australian wild to your very doorstep.
For those seeking to bring "Ned Kelly" into their garden sanctuary, planting in the ground is ideal. For gardens with sandy terrains, integrating a soil conditioner will give this Grevillea the boost it needs. As it gets rooted, its resilience becomes evident, showing increased drought-hardiness. To keep it in prime condition, a sprinkle of low-phosphorus native fertiliser during Djilba (early spring) is the key.
