Plant Varieties Courses

Grevilleas, a diverse family of evergreen flowering plants, are extraordinary to behold. There are hundreds of species, mostly indigenous to Australia, and in keeping with their native homeland, their flowers resemble their arachnid co-inhabitants and are called ‘The Spider Flower’. Coming in many hues including white, grey, green, red and pink, grevilleas can range from small shrubs to lofty trees. The aborigines liked the flowers for their rich source of sweet nectar, possibly making them the first ‘bush lollies’ – but they clearly knew which grevillea plants to avoid, as some produce cyanide. Toxicity aside, there is no denying the striking and vibrant appeal of these exotic plants – well worth introducing to your garden... ADL's online course on growing grevilleas could provide you with a thorough grounding in identifying, growing and using these plants – but there are many more...
