Grevillea ‘Mt Tamboritha’ – 140MM

I am Mt Tamboritha Grevillea. My family originated from South East Australia

Botanic Name: Grevillea lanigera ‘Mt. Tamboritha’

Bushy – Bird and bee attracting

I am an Australian native ground cover form of Grevillea with narrow pointed foliage and masses of red and cream spider flowers which can appear year round if planted in a sunny location.

My compact form is sufficiently dense that it will outcompete most weeds.

My flowers are particularly popular with small nectar feeding birds including spinebills and honeyeaters.

I work particularly well in rockeries, on banks or cascading over retaining walls.
