Grevillea gaudichaudii

A great groundcovering grevillea, it has bronze coloured new growth on the ferny and naturally dense foliage. One plant can spread to 3 metres wide, making it a useful and weed deterring plant for landscaping work. Fast growing. It flowers in spring and summer with toothbrush style blooms which attract small nectar eating birds and insects. It is drought and frost resistant. If it needs feeding, use a low phosphorus fertiliser.

It is a cross between Grevillea acanthifolia and Grevillea laurifolia.

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