Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream' PP18,035 - A small to medium sized shrub with a dense spreading habit to 4 to 6 feet tall by slightly wider with attractive deeply dissected foliage that is bright green with bronze highlights in winter and 4 inch long loose flower clusters that are hold greenish yellow flowers that age to various shades of yellow, pink and orange and can be in flower at any time of the year. Plant in full to partial sun in a well-drained soil and water occasionally should prove drought tolerant once established. Hardy to around 23 F. Tolerant of both dry conditions and considerable humidity. A great looking plant in the garden as a specimen or short screen where its multicolored flowers over a long period are both beautiful and attractive to nectar feeding birds. According to the patent application this plant was a spontaneous seedling hybrid found in a garden of Dennis Cox and Janice Glazebrook in Burpengary, a suburb just north of Brisbane Queensland in 1997 though we have found other sources that note it was originally found in Logan Village, a suburb south of Brisbane and later nurtured and propagated in Burpengary. It arose between a plant of Grevillea bipinnatifida and a plant of a prostrate white flowering form of Grevillea banksii so these are the presumed parents. This particular Grevillea bipinnatifida was a smaller plant around 3 feet tall with apricot colored flowers and blue-green foliage while the form of Grevillea banksii is a low sprawling plant with cream colored flowers and grey-green hairy leaves. It received US Plant Patent PP18,035 in September 2007 and was first grown in California as a cut flower and is a 2013 release in the U.S. nursery trade by Ball Horticulture.

We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream' PP18,035.
