The interesting divided foliage coupled with masses of lemon yellow flower heads in spring are the outstanding features of this showy grevillea. Use it as a feature plant grown amongst other shrubs which can help to hide a somewhat sprawling growth habit. It is also useful as a short lived cut flower for indoor decoration. It needs very well drained soil to emulate the conditions it prefers in its wild habitat and benefits from being grafted onto tougher grevillea rootstocks when grown in heavier soils.

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.
