I just love Robyn Gordon. Apart from when it has been pruned, it's hardly ever out of flower. It's a terrific pic, Enrico.

Look so lush & healthy - do you think they would do ok in hot dry climate?
What do they need/like? Haven't grown a grevillea.

Might check out the nursery.

They love a hot, dry climate. They do require some water to get them established, but after a couple of years you would find they'd survive quite well on very little if any supplementary watering.

I concur with Pam there. We had them just south of Goondiwindi and they did well. And I have visited the original Robyn Gordon Grevillea plant! It was very hot and dry there in December! :)
