The stunning crimson red flowers borne all year round on a medium sized shrub are the outstanding attributes of this excellent grevillea. Use it as a feature shrub that will attract masses of honey eating birds to your garden and can also be cut for indoor decoration as the flower heads last a week or so indoors. Cut off old flowering branches when they stop producing new flower buds and feed once a year with a low phosphorus native fertiliser.
