Grevillea juniperina ‘Pink Lady’


This is a very tough and very attractive ground cover shrub with delicate pink coronet-shaped flowers most of the year but peaking in Spring. It grows to half a metre high and spreads to 2 metres wide, with fine but prickly foliage which serves to give cover to birds and other wildlife such as lizards. Use it as a rockery or ground cover plant to spill over walls and embankments where the birds it attracts can be enjoyed. Give it a light trim at the end of spring if it looks like it needs a tidy up. Frost and drought tolerant. Feed a with low phospohorus native fertilizer in spring or summer, watering in well afterwards.

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