Name: Red Silky Oak
Scientific Name: Grevillea banksii
Seen: Fire Deck level
Notes: This is most likely the oldest Grevillea on the property(excluding the Gravillea robustas) and is a much hacked and neglected tree in the driest and most exposed area of the fire deck level.
We pruned the tree when we arrived and have endeavoured to improve it’s situation since. It has been ‘boxed’, watered, fertilised and “poo-bagged” for some months now and is slowly improving.
We named this tree – Gary – the Grevillea
October – 2016 – Gary is currently flowering and has two flowers at present. We are hoping for more
