Crimsonvillea™ Grevillea rosmarinifolia 'GH16' PBR Intended

Many grevillea rosmarinafolia types have washed out yellow foliage even in good conditions, and quickly become un tidy. Crimson Villea™ Grevillea on the other hand not only has much greener foliage, but it is more branching, making it a tighter, denser more compact plant, but best of all, the Crimson Villea™ plant has the best most prolific flowers.

A yearly prune will keep this mass flowering plant tidy. One of the great things about Crimson Villea™ Grevillea rosmarinafolia is not only does it flower in Spring, it also flowers in winter and winter flowering plants are hard to find.

Do not use this plant in tropical and sub tropical regions. It’s best for temperate or hot dry climates. It averages about 60cm or two feet high, and is very heat and frost tolerant compared to many other Grevillea types. I find I get best results with this plant if I fertilise once per year with a 8 to 9 month slow release fertiliser.

GOLD CLUSTER™ Grevillea is a flat growing ground cover plant with masses of gold flowers

The Gold Cluster™ Grevillea plant is the lowest growing, ground hugging, cold tolerant Grevillea around.

It is far more prostrate than other Grevillea juneperina types. Best of all it has more flowers for longer. In winter it is one the highlights of the garden, flowering at a time when little else does, but it also flowers well into Spring. It’s not suited to tropical regions, or higher humidity areas, but it is suitable for hot dry areas, or moderately humid areas.

As far as Grevillea plants go it is more cold tolerant, and is definitely less fussy than most Grevillea plants. Remember, although not essential, a prune every 2 years does help it keep more tidy.

CHERRY CLUSTER™ Grevillea is a tough groundcover shrub with masses of red flowers

Cherry Cluster™ Grevillea is a compact reliable  shrub for temperate or hot and dry regions.

I love its beautiful deep red flowers, that put on a great show for much of Winter and early Spring, as well as spasmodic flowering at other times of the year. It is one of the best compact grevillea forms, and can cope with more frost than most other forms. It can be used as a ground cover form if pruned yearly, or like this (click on the photo to watch a video of Cherry Cluster™) as a small shrub form in it’s natural shape.
