Grevillea ‘Ember Glow’

 

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.

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.
