A low growing and spreading shrub, which flowers for most of the year with red spider flowers. The flowers are rich in nectar which is loved by a range of wildlife. Great as a feature plant for rockeries and shrubberies as well as for pots. It grows to around a metre high, and will spread to a couple of metres wide, and has a dense habit. It can be pruned after flowering to increase the density. It is frost and drought tolerant.
It is a cross between Grevillea rhyolitica and Grevillea juniperina, both tough and hardy plants, and Ember Glow is similarly useful in a range of areas.
