"Scarlet Moon", a cultivar of Grevillea nivea x formosa 'Lasseters Gold', boasts bright red flowers year-round, providing consistent visual allure to any garden. This upright, medium to large sized shrub has silvery grey-green foliage which complements the stunning transition of its white flower buds that blossom into vibrant blooms. Loved by native Australian birds, this Grevillea, bred by Kings Park, is a testament to successful hybridisation, marrying beauty with resilience.
When establishing "Scarlet Moon" in the ground, enriching poor, sandy soils with a suitable conditioner is recommended. As this native marvel matures, it showcases its increasing drought-hardiness, demanding minimal watering even in drier periods. For peak health and vibrancy, administer a low-phosphorus native fertiliser during Djilba (early spring).
