Fast growing native groundcover grevillea, perfect for erosion control on steep embankments. Attractive fine fishbone foliage. Flowers profusely in exposed sunny sites, attracting nectar-feeding birds.
DESCRIPTION: Hardy native groundcover featuring large red brush-like flowers. Ideal groundcover for rocky embankments and sandy soil. LOCATION: Plant in a full sun location for maximum flowering, tolerates light shade. Suited to erosion control on steep embankments. Tolerates drought once established. CARE: Water regularly during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Prune after flowering to promote flowering, dense habit and control growth. A hard prune each 3-4 years will result in a fresh flush of flowers and foliage. 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%. Prefers free draining soil.
