Grevillea 'Cherry Royal' - A moderately-fast dense-growing shrub to 2 feet tall by 3 feet wide with soft olive-green oval leaves and cherry red "spider" type flowers in spring and a scattered bloom at other times of the year. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil with occasional to little irrigation. It should tolerate inland heat and has been frost hardy to at least 20 F. This plant was discovered as a seedling volunteer in 2001 growing on the grounds of the University of California Santa Cruz arboretum where is was given the temporary name of Grevillea sp. - garden seedling 2001.289. The genus name Grevillea honors Charles Francis Greville (1749-1809), a patron of botany, a very close friend of Sir Joseph Banks, and president of the Royal Society of London. We like this plant but it has been hard to maintain in containers over summer in our climate.  Information displayed on this page about  Grevillea 'Cherry Royal' is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
