Landscape Attributes

Prostrate Woolly Grevillea is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.

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.

Prostrate Woolly Grevillea is recommended for the following landscape applications;

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

Planting & Growing

Prostrate Woolly Grevillea will grow to be about 20 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
