Grevillea ‘Grassfire’

The attractive green pinnate leaves are studded with lots of bright red toothbrush flowers in spring and summer, making this a superb, dense ground cover. Use it to stabilise banks or as an extensive ground cover to minimise weed growth and stop erosion. Very little maintenance is required apart from periodic removal of dead bits. Drought and frost tolerant, and can be used for seaside gardens.
