Landscape Attributes

Poorinda Royal Mantle Grevillea is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Poorinda Royal Mantle Grevillea is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Mass Planting;Rock/Alpine Gardens;General Garden Use;Groundcover;Container Planting

Planting & Growing

Poorinda Royal Mantle Grevillea will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
