Grevillea diminuta

This beautiful, spreading shrub grows to 1m in height, and up to 4m in diameter. It blooms from spring to early summer with very attractive pendulous rusty-orange and red clusters of flowers that are a great food source for various wildlife, from smaller birds to pollinators and butterflies. The flowers contract beautifully with the silver-grey foliage, which make for an attractive plant even when not in flower. Grows in sun to part shade, can take dry spells.

It naturally grows in alpine conditions so is well suited to colder areas, quite frost tolerant. If you need to feed this plant, only use a low phosphorus fertiliser.
