Grevillea ‘Bush Lemons’

Family: Proteaceae

Grevillea ‘Bush Lemons’ is a spectacular hybrid that was developed by Changers Green Nursery, Gin Gin Queensland. We cannot find a record of its parents but this does not detract from this long-flowering Grevillea.

From its appearance, the parents would be Queensland species or hybrids.

Grevillea ‘Bush Lemons’ is a medium shrub that is said to reach a height of three metres by a similar width.

The leaves are grey-green and deeply divided. The large flowers are yellow and are carried throughout the year. Honeyeaters will flock to the nectar-rich blooms.

 

In the garden

Regular pruning will encourage a tidy growth habit and encourage maximum flowering.

Grevillea ‘Bush Lemon’ is a beautiful shrub. The foliage provides a contrast with the large flowers.

This is one of our “must have” plants. The photo was taken in a Sydney garden. In our cold climate garden we will be growing the plant in a sheltered situation preferably against a north-facing wall.

We are successfully growing a number of these Queensland hybrids, including ‘Honey Gem’ and ‘Robyn Gordon’, in sheltered positions.
