Who is growing Grevillea victoriae?
As mentioned in a separate thread, I spent a day down in Tacoma this past weekend. I visited one of my favorite nurseries, Jungle Fever Exotics (which is fairly frost bitten after this winter) and purchased a small Grevillea victoriae. I haven't planted it yet, but will this weekend. I wanted to see who has had some long term success with this plant, and what suggestions for success can you offer?
I can (and have) looked it up online and in reference books, but if you're growing it successfully (or killed it!), feel free to share any cultural tips. There's just no subsitute for first-hand experience.
Jungle Fever did have a lot of damage from the cold, but they also had plenty of plants that looked great, including the "mother" plant from which my little cutting was started. My little plant is only six inches tall, but is already sporting a small cluster of buds and survived the winter at their nusery uncovered.
Any tips/tricks would be great. Otherwise I'll just put it in my warmest west-facing quick-draining bed.
Take care and thanks!
