Grevillea 'Granya Glory' (UCSC) - A compact, low-spreading, slow-growing shrub to 1-2 feet tall and 2-4' feet wide with 1 1/2-inch-long gray-green hairy, linear to oblong leaves. Large clusters of rose-red and cream flowers occur at ends of branches from late fall into spring.

Plant in full sun to part shade. Irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Notably tolerant of diverse soils. Tip prune after flowering to promote bushiness. This plant is attractive to nectar feeding birds.

This naturally occurring hybrid between Grevillea lanigera and G. polybractea was found growing on Mt. Granya in Victoria, Australia. It was a 2002 University of California Santa Cruz Koala Blooms Australian Plant Introduction. We thought it a nice plant for milder coastal Southern California gardens but it was determined to be too tender and had some disease problems and as a result was dropped from the Koala Blooms Program in 2006. 

This information about Grevillea 'Granya Glory' displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
