Grevillea crithmifolia

 

The naturally dense and spreading habit and profuse flowering of this low growing grevillea are its key features. Use it as a weed suppressing ground cover or as a feature shrub in the garden. It rarely needs maintenance but will usually benefit from a light trim after it finishes flowering in spring. The flowers are scented, and are attractive to nectar lovers like small birds, butterflies and other insects. It is frost hardy, and drought tolerant once established. Likes well drained sandy or more clay soils, alkaline to neutral.
