Grevillea juniperina hybrid ‘Juniper Rose’

The dense ground covering growth habit combines with profuse flowering through the cooler months of the year to create a very useful, waterwise grevillea. Use ‘Juniper Rose’ as a mounding ground cover to create excellent habitat for smaller birds such as spinebills and honeyeaters. It rarely needs maintenance, however, a light pruning and a handful of low phosphorus fertilizer in mid spring will help to stimulate better flowering for the following season. Introduced by Zanthorrea Nursery from Perth, Western Australia.

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