Grevillea lanigera ‘Mallee Cherie’

A delightful small to medium shrub, with profuse small red and cream spider flowers in winter and spring. Growing to around 1.2 metres high and wide, with reasonably dense grey green foliage, it can be pruned to smaller size if needed. Good for low informal hedging and screening, suits most soils. At its best in well drained soil and sunny spot. Feed with a low phosphorus fertiliser in spring if needed.

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