An attractively variegated version of the hardy and useful ground covering Grevillea gaudichaudii. The new growth is pink, and fades to white with age, contrasting well with the green older ferny leaves. It gets red toothbrush flowers in winter and spring, which are bird attracting. It is dense growing, and can spread to several metres wide. The variegation makes it somewhat more sun sensitive, so is best in part shaded positions to prevent leaf burn. Frost and drought tolerant once established.
