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.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Grevillea 'Cherry Royal'.
