Ideal as a groundcover, this is a dense, mounding grevillea with striking and plentiful pink flowers, which resemble jelly babies. These form a contrast to the understated grey foliage.
This plant excels particularly when grown in rockeries or as part of a rocky landscape, and also makes a fantastic container plant for balconies and patios. A favourite of honeyeating birds, this grevillea will always bring avian friends to the garden.
Appreciates a gentle pruning after flowering. Tolerates some frost and is a great waterwise plant.
