I listed the hardiness as 9b since I could find no info on the hardiness for this species and the closely related G. paniculata which this plant is sometimes sold as is hardy to 9b. However, it not only survived our deep freeze this winter (temps in low 20's overnight for 4-5 days in a row and below freezing for over a week), but showed no damage whatsoever and even kept right on blooming, so I suspect it may do OK in slightly colder zones (the plant had also only been in the ground for a little over a month when the cold snap hit, so it wasn't even well established)

As with any member of Proteaceae family, avoid using phosphorus-containing fertilizer.
