Grevillea juniperina hybrid ‘Juniper Rose’

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 you want, the next step is to find where to get it. Nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may or may not have the wanted plant in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you.  Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you want, they can often suggest alternative plants that will be just as good for you.
