Description

The "Ruby Dream" cultivar, a complex Grevillea hybrid, boasts rich, ruby red flowers that captivate from Djilba (early spring) until Bunuru (late summer). Its large, narrow, upright form makes it a versatile choice for gardens, able to be shaped as a striking small tree or left as a shrub. The vibrant blooms don't just catch human eyes; native birds are irresistibly drawn to its allure, making your garden a hub of activity.

For those choosing to plant "Ruby Dream" in the ground, consider enhancing sandy soils with a good-quality conditioner to give it a robust start. As the shrub matures, it becomes increasingly drought-tolerant, ideal for the Australian environment. To maintain its rich hue and vigour, it's advisable to feed it with a low-phosphorus native fertiliser during Djilba (early spring).
