Grevillea ‘Goldfever’


A very useful low maintenance spreading shrub, with a naturally dense and rounded habit. It flowers for most of the year, with pale golden spider type flowers, which are good for nectar loving wildlife. Great as a feature ground cover plant for rockeries and shrubberies as well as for pots. Can be grown on a range of soil types including heavier ones. Frost and drought tolerant once established. While it is an easy care plant, a little bit of care will see even better results. Light pruning will encourage an even more dense habit. Unpruned, it grows to around 1.5 metres wide, and 30 centimetres high.

Gold Fever is a cross between Grevillea juniperina and Grevillea rhyolitica, and has all the good characteristics of the parent plants.

Feed in warm months with a good all purpose or native fertiliser if needed.

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