Grevillea x gaudichaudii

Proteaceae
Ground covers, Shrubs

GREVILLEA

This plant group generally has fine-textured foliage and long, slender, curved flowers, usually borne in dense clusters. Many cannot tolerate salt-laden soils, poor water quality, heavy summer irrigation, or heavy frost, but all are attractive enough to warrant some risk taking. Like other members of the protea family, they are sensitive to high levels of phosphorus in the soil. Fertilize lightly and avoid high-phosphorus fertilizers.

Grevillea x gaudichaudii

Prostrate plant spreading 10–15 ft. wide. Lobed leaves resembling oak leaves are bronzy when they emerge, then mature to dark green. Toothbrush-like clusters of dark red flowers in winter and spring. Provide good drainage, moderate water. Takes sun but prefers partial shade. Tolerates extended wet periods.
