This, my friends, is Grevillea ‘Long John’. I’m very excited to introduce you to him because there is nothing about this plant not to love. It is waterwise, easy to grow, and a real show-off whether it is in flower or not. It gets about 8′ tall, so plan on making it a focal point in your garden.
I snapped these photos in Coronado, and if anyone knows who designed this garden, please let me know! It is so well done. They even managed to get edibles into the front yard… and have it look good. Bravo!
And for all my landscape designer friends who are already well acquainted with Grevilleas, bravo to you, too. Let’s use him more often.
