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.

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.
