Also native to Australia, these tough & colorful shrubs are well suited to our Bay Area climate. Bright fire-engine red to orange-scarlet, pink or white flowers attract hummingbirds. A few of our favorites are the tall growing G. ‘Superb’, the low-growing G. lanigera ‘Mt. Tamboritha’, as well as the unusual-looking G. nudiflora ‘Medusa’. Give them a sunny spot with well-draining, LOW-nutrient soil.
