Grevillea ‘Poorinda Royal Mantle’


A prostrate dense ground cover with attractive toothed leaves, new growth is coppery red. One of the original and best Grevillea cultivars ever released. Fantastic for banks and as a ground cover, and in large landscaping areas, as it can quickly grow to cover to 6 metres. Flowers winter to late spring with toothbrush red flowers, with spot flowering the rest of the year. Also makes a great weeping standard when grafted. Grows in most areas of Australia except for the tropics. Drought tolerant, fast growing and withstands frost to -8.

Feed in spring and summer with a good native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn.

Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas
