Golden-variegated grevillea, something a little different! Masses of small coral red cat's claw flowers, the ideal shape for native honeyeaters and spinebills to feed on. Frost, wind, and drought tolerant once established, compact size for informal hedging or mixed borders. The golden new leaf colour matures to silver underneath, creating a very pretty effect.
