A small shrub with an upright to lightly spreading habit; soft grey-green leaves with striking bronze new growth. Lovely pink and white flowers grow on the end of the branches from winter through spring to early summer. Create a charming hedge or use as a border plant, or grow amongst other bird habitat plantings. And it is especially stunning when grown in a tub and placed on a deck, patio or in a courtyard, so the visiting honeyeaters can be seen up close and personal. Tolerates medium frost and dry spells.
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.
