Grevillea ‘Flora Gold’

Masses of golden flower clusters that open to a beautiful yellow set amongst soft oval green leaves are the key features of this lovely little grevillea. Use it as a shrub for the front of the garden where you will be able to enjoy the birds it attracts. It is also fantastic for rockeries or pots as well. Give it a light trim at the end of spring to keep it tidy.
