A new and very attractive Grevillea cultivar, prostrate in habit. The bright red toothbrush flowers contrast beautifully with the grey green ferny foliage and pale stems and buds. The naturally dense ground covering habit can be further encouraged with tip pruning after flowering to create a weed deterring mat. The blooms are attractive to nectar loving birds and insects. Likes a sunny position and well drained soil. Good for cool temperate to sub tropical areas.
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.
