Grevillea ‘Sunset Bronze’

Don looked at a fascinating new grevillea hybrid of unknown parentage. Grevillea ‘Sunset Bronze’ was a chance seedling found in a Brisbane garden and is thought to be a cross with G. ‘Honey Gem’. It was first propagated by grevillea enthusiast Merv Hodge, and later introduced to the nursery industry by Nielsen’s Native Nursery in Brisbane.
