Grevillea ‘Amethyst

Grevillea ‘Amethyst’ is a hybrid whose parents are G. confertifolia and G. sericea. This is a case where the progeny exceeds some of the good points of both parents.

Grevillea ‘Amethyst’ is a small, rounded shrub with narrow, slightly prickly foliage and masses of showy, mauve flowers in spring. Sporadic flowering occurs at other times. We feel that Grevillea ‘Amethyst’ flowers are brighter and more profuse than the blooms of either of the parents.

In our cold climate garden when in flower G. Amethyst is one of our most eye-catching plants. The mauve flowers literally cover the plant.

Grevillea 'Amethyst' could be cultivated in a rockery or native cottage garden. This hardy hybrid could also be grown as the border to garden beds as a colourful substitute for the ubiquitous exotic box.
