PROTEACEAE, The Protea family
Who says Grevilleas are for California? This pretty little shrub, grown by Cistus nursery, is being used in a new ‘town center’ planting near here- in containers no less. It is hardy to zone 7/8, is evergreen, with needle-like leaves, and blooms sporadically year-round once established, especially during cold weather. It grows to around 4 feet tall and wide. It likes full sun and lean soil, so hold the fertilizer if you’d like to see blossoms. Pretty!
