Grevillea alpina – Mountain Grevillea

This shrub flowers profusely for much of the year and is very popular in cultivation. There are many interesting and versatile forms available. This shrub has an incredible range of growth habits from low, cascading forms to taller upright forms, with dense dark green to grey green foliage and a great variety of flower colours. Flower colour can range from pink, red and orange to cream and green. Great as a low-growing shrub, screen or feature shrub, especially for colder areas, as it originates in the alpine areas of the east coast. The flowers attract wildlife such as the smaller nectar eating birds and insects.
