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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Grevillea 'Cherry Royal'.
