Got sunshine? Well drained soils too? Looking for shrubs which will provide lots of flowers, grow easily and take care of themselves in such situations? Then Grevilleas are the answer, especially low growing varieties such as ‘Red Clusters’ which is smothered in dark red flowers for many months, often starting in autumn and carrying on until late spring. This versatile shrub has handsome, small, bronze green foliage which combines excellently with its flowers and ensures that the slightly weeping habit of growth is an attractive feature in itself.
The dense growth habit makes Grevillea ‘Red Clusters’ a good choice for low maintenance gardens as it will beat out weeds and its ability to grow happily in poor and dry soils and to withstand windy conditions means it can transform difficult sites into delightful ones. Combine it with other low growing, easy-care shrubs such as Grevillea ‘Mount Tambourine’ Leucadendron ‘Julie’, Hypocalymma ‘Golden Veil’, Rhaphiolepsis ‘Ballerina’ and Rosmarinus ‘Lockwood de Forest’ for a carefree but full of character planting.
