Grevillea lanigera 'Mt Tamboritha'APPEARANCE : Spreading ground cover with small oblong foliage covered in fine silvery down. Showy clusters of small pink and cream flowers appear from late winter to spring.
USE FOR : Perfect for rockeries, coastal gardens, embankments and containers. Bird attracting native. Tolerates dry periods once established.
PLANTING : Plant in well drained soil in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden. Frost tolerant. Avoid wet mulch as the leaves resting above it may brown, using a dry mulch such as pebbles or chunky bark will help to avoid this in humid climates.
CARE : Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. 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%.
