Grevillea petrophiloides - Pink Pokers Grevillea - 5 seeds
Grevillea petrophiloides is an erect, open shrub to 3m high with most flowers held erect on floral stems above the foliage but some flowering also occurs within the outer foliage. The flower racemes are up to 8cm long and the flower colour ranges from mid to deep pink, flowering usually occurs in Winter and Spring. The foliage is dark green, finely divided and held quite erect.
This is a very ornamental species which occurs in sandy and rocky areas in quite specific soil types. It has proven difficult to maintain in cultivation and appears to resent humid conditions and poor drainage but is very hardy when established in suitable conditions. Some success has been achieved in unsuitable growing areas through grafting.
Propagation may be carried out from seed and germination is improved if the seed is carefully "nicked" with a sharp knife to expose the embryo and good results have been achieved generally using smoke products such as Regen2000.
