Grevillea x gaudichaudii
A naturally occurring hybrid grevillea from New South Wales, Grevillea x gaudichaudii is one of the most unique and distinctive grevilleas we’ve seen. With its bronze oak-like foliage and deep purple tooth brush looking flowers, it’s a stellar choice for a unique ground cover in a dry, sunny spot. Stays very low, growing only 6 inches or a foot tall and spread over 10 feet wide. Very cool!
