A prostrate dense ground cover with attractive toothed leaves, new growth is coppery red. One of the original and best Grevillea cultivars ever released. Fantastic for banks and as a ground cover, and in large landscaping areas, as it can quickly grow to cover to 6 metres. Flowers winter to late spring with toothbrush red flowers, with spot flowering the rest of the year. Also makes a great weeping standard when grafted. Grows in most areas of Australia except for the tropics. Drought tolerant, fast growing and withstands frost to -8.
Feed in spring and summer with a good native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn.
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.
