Yet Another Flowery Thing

This one is the Grevillia dryandra.   It's a bit special because it's not quite as robust for our garden purposes as many of its ilk, so it's been grafted onto the roots of a potential monster - the Grevillia robusta or Silky Oak.  Now it should be truly hardy and drought and klutz-proof, which at our place, with it's lack of attendant gardeners is a good thing.

Hopefully we'll notice if any Silky Oak shoots head skyward, because if we don't, or little shrub will certainly grow well beyond the power lines under which it is planted!

It certainly is pleasing to the eye.

Loving the flowers in your garden.

We are having a problem with the root stock of the neighbours Robinia sending up prickly little trees in our garden. We have to snip them off as fast as they pop up.

On the other hand we are sending Liquid Amber offshoots all over the neighbourhood and they grow into giants too.
