A high-society plant!

Johnson’s grevillea… A plant named after a very distinguished gentleman! With its flamboyant flowers and elegant appearance, Johnson’s grevillea is the genuine aristocrat of the plant world.

And here at Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ®, our four-star campsite in the Var area, French Riviera-Côte d’Azur, the proud Johnson’s grevillea definitely resembles an aristocrat wearing a neckerchief made of scarlet flowers!

In addition to beautifying the landscape, this gorgeous plant with its eccentric appearance adds an extra touch of sophistication to the superb exceptional vegetation forming the natural backdrop to our seaside campsite.

Some might say that Johnson’s grevillea is a bit temperamental, but once it is settled in its environment, it generously rewards its carers with vibrant, eye-catching flowers.

A shrub for a flower bed or hedge for a coastal garden

Native to Australia, Johnson’s grevillea is not a very hardy plant, so it loves our gardens situated near the Mediterranean Sea, where the temperature rarely drops below zero even in winter.

Its blooms are rather spectacular and its flowers are very unusually shaped.

It blooms abundantly from late winter to late spring, forming clusters of curious, bright pink flowers enhanced with cream, rolled up like little snails with long, curved stamens. Our summer holidaymakers will only see the last of the blooms, but can still have fun spotting the plant on our Sentier Décou’Verte ® botanical footpath!
