East meets West in this hybrid grevillea, with one parent from WA and one from NSW. This mix of coasts suggests that this native would be happy in most gardens across the country, adapting to a range of climate and soil conditions, and reportedly good to -6C.

A beautiful shrub, with elegant fine foliage, large enough to make an impression but small enough to fit into most suburban gardens; and a long flowering season with heaps of nectar for native birds.
