"Showtime", a complex Grevillea hybrid, certainly lives up to its name, ensuring that every garden becomes the main stage. With its dramatic reddish-pink blossoms tinged with peach orange tones, this medium shrub delivers a performance from Makuru (winter) to Kambarang (late spring) that's sure to earn a standing ovation from native birds. Bred by Kings Park and renowned as a heavy flowerer, this star knows how to steal the spotlight, be it as a centrepiece or playing a supporting role amongst other flora.
When casting "Showtime" in your garden's lineup, it's best suited for roles in the ground, and an initial application of soil conditioner can enhance the performance on sandy stages. As this diva settles into its role, it demonstrates an impressive tolerance to drought. For an encore performance year after year, feeding with a low-phosphorus native fertiliser during Djilba (early spring) is your ticket to keeping the show running smoothly.
