Grevillea obtusifolia ‘Ging Gin Gem’

A superb ground cover grevillea, with an attractive dense growth habit that will suppress weeds. It flowers over a long period, from winter to spring with some spot flowers in autumn, with small spider type red and cream flowers. They are nectar rich and attractive to small birds and native bees. Does well in coastal sites, flowers best in sunny positions but performs well in part shade. Tolerates light frost. Prune lightly after flowering for an even more dense habit, and feed in spring.

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.
