Description
 
Quite the distinctive Grevillea being a true groundcover growing very flat to the ground.  The oak-like leaves are bronze when young and mature to a dark green both colors providing a fine backdrop for the large feathery combs of red flowers.  This is likely not hardy below the low 20's but is grown successfully at the Barca garden on Whidbey Island in a raised bed against a south facing wall and also is luxuriant at the Miller Botanic Garden in Seattle where it flows down a slope and where curator Richie Steffen gave us our cuttings.  Sun and good drainage and low phosphorous if you do fertilize.  At least this is easy to cover being flat in the event of a severe cold snap!
