One of the great spreading groundcover grevilleas for difficult sites, with bronze-red deeply divided foliage. It is naturally dense and fast growing, which helps to suppress weeds, making for easy care landscaping. Nectar-rich toothbrush flowers of deep purple-red appear throughout the year. Good for banks and as a ground cover in large gardens. Also makes a great weeping standard. It is drought and frost tolerant, and will do well in well drained clay to sandy soils. A good habitat plant for wildlife such as frogs, lizards and small birds.
