Grevillea 'Billy Bonkers' is an evergreen, low growing shrub, with bright pink flowers nearly all year round. It grows to around a metre high, and two metres wide. The toothbrush shaped flowers are highly bird attracting. A great feature or pot plant.
'Billy Bonkers' likes a sunny spot, and does best in a well drained soil. Once established, it can tolerate temperatures down to -3 degrees, but should be protected from frost when young. Fertilise with a good low phosphorus native fertiliser in spring. Regular light pruning will help to keep the plant compact.
