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.
