The dense ground covering growth habit combines with profuse flowering through the cooler months of the year to create a very useful, waterwise grevillea. Use ‘Juniper Rose’ as a mounding ground cover to create excellent habitat for smaller birds such as spinebills and honeyeaters. It rarely needs maintenance, however, a light pruning and a handful of low phosphorus fertilizer in mid spring will help to stimulate better flowering for the following season. Introduced by Zanthorrea Nursery from Perth, Western Australia.

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.
