The Grevillea juniperina whose common name is Aucuba or Spotted Laurel
is a plant of the Proteaceae family and comes from Australia

It is a bush of Australian origin adapted to its Mediterranean type climate and which needs quite a few hours of sunshine.

The plant can grow up to 2 or 3 metres. Due to its characteristics it is a good species to plant in varied flowerbeds and in rockeries.

Although it can stand occasional and not very intense frosts, it behaves better in temperate spaces. Frosts can damage it significantly.

Flowering:

It flowers all spring until the beginning of summer. Its flower is usually red but it can also have more pink, orange and yellowish flowers. The most valued in gardening is the red flower.

Pruning:
It has an unkempt growth and therefore it is advisable to maintain its shape with a formation pruning that will keep it bushier in terms of vegetation and will also tend to maintain a more intense green appearance. As a good Mediterranean plant, it is adapted to drought, but we should not let it suffer extreme dryness because it will lose its attractive appearance.

At the end of winter we can do a little more important pruning to control its size. It's advisable to do it at the end of the winter to have the shrub with its poorer aspect (without leaves because of the drastic pruning) for the minimum time possible. If we do this important pruning at the end of winter the sprouting will be close and soon we'll have the beautiful green shrub again.

Watering:
We will keep a not very abundant watering but without having it in an excessive drought. In summer we can increase a little the frequency. If we have the plant used to little water, we can manage to water it only once a week during the summer (as long as we have it planted in the ground).

Fertilization:
We will fertilize at the end of winter and during spring once a month. In autumn we can add some fertilizer. In the summer we can fertilize if necessary due to the appearance of the plant, but in principle it is not necessary. In winter we won't fertilize.

Diseases:
Very little affected by plagues. Some aphids can appear in flowers and young shoots, but very rarely.
