Planting & Care
Because Grevillea is tall, wide, messy, and the branches fall off commonly, it does best in an open area away from buildings and roads. Grevillea also grows best in USDA zones 9-11 and prefers well-drained soil to prevent root rot. Growing Grevillea in the garden in these zones is not difficult.
It is fairly drought resistant and likes to have full sun. This tree seems to do well in southern Florida, Texas, California, and New Mexico. For not living in a suitable growing zone, this plant can also be grown in containers and kept indoors.
