Grevillea ‘Raptor’

A fast growing hardy ground cover which can spread to around 1-2 metres wide. The red toothbrush-like flowers produced in winter and spring complement the new growth which is also a deep red colour. During cold winters plants develop a bronzed appearance. Ideal for covering large areas such as embankments and driveways. Suits cool to warm temperate areas, sunny positions and well drained soils. Tolerates some frost and dry conditions once established.
