Grevillea rosmarinifolia ‘Scarlet Sprite’


The dense mounding habit of this neat shrub features a prolific display of scarlet flowers over an extended period. The mid-green prickly needle-like foliage is great for providing bird habitat so use this as a feature shrub at the front of the garden so you can enjoy the bird life. It is also very suitable for frosty climates and needs very little if any maintenance. If desired a light prune will lead to an even more dense growth habit.
