Grevillea 'Little Honey' PP18,489 - A medium to large sized shrub that grows 6 to 8 feet in height and is wider than tall with 8 inch long narrowly dissected leaves that are medium green above and creamy-silvery underneath. From winter through spring appear the 6 inch long cylindrical clusters of orange flowers with yellow styles - have seen this flower listed as having a nice fragrance but we don't seem to be able to smell much ourselves. Plant in full to partial sun in a well-drained soil and water occasionally – should prove drought tolerant once established. Hardy to around 20° F (breeder reports tolerating to 19.4° F). A great plant for use as a hedge or screen that has proven itself in inland San Diego county plantings where it has been grown for cut flower use.
