Reflection on cultivars.. Nursery open today.Ellendale Pool Grevillea.
This Grevillea cultivar originated at Ellendale Pool. A plant that is now grown all around Australia. Interestingly enough cultivars are often seedlings found in the wild that exhibit certain desirable characterisics. For example compact, a nice form and with a long flowering period. They are mostly propagated from cuttings to ensure each plant is the same as the mother plant.
The disadvantages of growing cultivars is due to them all being genetically identical they are all susceptible to the same disease or pest unlike seedling plants (which are genetically diverse) which may have a degree of tolerance. You could compare this to people are how some catch flu virus easily and others don't.
So my thoughts on growing the same cultivars are:
1. Try to grow cultivars from your local area.
2. Match their preferred soil type with yours.
3.If you have a larger area and want to ensure the survival of your plants over time, then plant seedlings or a variety different cultivars.
