This grevillea ('Peaches and Cream'?) likes to "sprawl out".
They do very well in our alkaline soil with minimal water.

I'm sorry, I couldn't locate the pic for the banner, but
here are others from this year's blooms,
and a slideshow. Smiling

Fantastic, Cal. These blooms look so exotic to my eyes. After consuming your own photos, I had to go to google for images of "Grevillea" and feast my eyes some more. Great job capturing the color range in your banner shot. I tip my hat to you. Hurray! Thumbs up

Thank you Elizabeth!
I'm very fortunate to be able to grow these beauties,
and to have friends like all of you. Smiling

I just went down to get some more pics before it gets
too hot....we have heat wave this week. Sticking tongue out

This is a different grevillea....can't remember the name.
It also has candy-like blooms.
But grows much larger, and the leaves are more like pine needles than the fern-like
leaves of 'Peaches n Cream'.
I'll have to cut it back this fall.
They're bee magnets, too.

BTW, Thank you, Australia, for these amazing plants! Thumbs up

Like Elizabeth, I had to go roam the internet for more pictures of this exotic plant! Your Peaches And Cream reminds me of cotton candy or pink and yellow lemonade! Such a yummy looking flower. Smiling Are they fragrant?

Not that I can't detect, but maybe someone else can.
That would be awesome if they were. Smiling
