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.
Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas

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.
