A superb and useful dwarf shrub, growing to half a metre high and wide. Lots of orange and yellow spider flowers all through winter and spring, which are great for smaller nectar feeders. Fine foliage and a naturally dense habit which can be made even more dense by light pruning after flowering. Tolerates heavy frost and drought once established. At its best in well drained soil and sun. Feed with a low phosphorus fertiliser in spring if needed.
Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas

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.
