The one bed you'll enjoy making! This new variety takes popular Royal Mantle and crosses it with G. wilkinsonii (Tumut grevillea) to give it longer darker flowers and larger, greener, less lobed leaves. Fair warning : our groundcover grevilleas are always extremely popular and sell out almost immediately.
Grevillea Royal Mantle x wilkinsonii 'Bedspread' PBR DESCRIPTION: Fast growing native groundcover Grevillea with toothed holly-like or oak-like leaves and long pink-red toothbrush flowers spring and autumn. Longer darker flowers than Royal Mantle, larger greener leaves than gaudichaudi. USES: Ground cover to retain soil and moisture, suppress weeds, hold banks together, keep roots of larger plants cool in summer or warm in winter. PLANTING: Well drained clay loams or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH. Grevilleas can tolerate dry spells, suitable for reasonably cold temperatures and sub-tropical or semi-arid climates. Tolerates light frost and salt spray. Prefers a full sun to part shade position. CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Prune after flowering to keep it neat and dense. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser when buds form - grevilleas can be phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 0.3 - 0.4 m x 2 - 3 m W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
