Grevillea robusta - Silky Oak

Grevillea robusta, the Silky Oak is a fast growing tree to 40 feet or more. Grevillea robusta will often drop branches. The area below the Silky Oak is covered in fallen leaves. The flowers are spectacular and Orioles and hummingbirds love the trees. If you pick the right spot in the garden this is a great drought tolerant tree. Grevillea robusta is a great addition to the hummingbird garden.
