Grevilleas. Learn all about grevilleas from native plant expert Angus Stewart.
Grevillea 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' is compact, long flowering dwarf shrub with red and yellow bicoloured flowers. A good landscaping plant, low maintenance and does well in a wide range of conditions. Withstands frosts and coastal positions. Flowers from spring to summer and on into autumn, and birds are attracted to the nectar rich blooms. Naturally dense in habit, only needs a light prune once in a while. Great pot plant for courtyards and patios, and is excellent for massed planting in garden beds, or to provide dramatic accent in rockeries. It is a hybrid of Grevillea alpina and Grevillea rosmarinifolia.
