Grevillea ‘Poorinda Royal Mantle’

 

A prostrate dense ground cover with attractive toothed leaves, new growth is coppery red. One of the original and best Grevillea cultivars ever released. Fantastic for banks and as a ground cover, and in large landscaping areas, as it can quickly grow to cover to 6 metres. Flowers winter to late spring with toothbrush red flowers, with spot flowering the rest of the year. Also makes a great weeping standard when grafted. Grows in most areas of Australia except for the tropics. Drought tolerant, fast growing and withstands frost to -8.
