Grevillea gaudichaudii ‘Gaudi’s Ghost’

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.

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.
