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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
