A rather delightful dwarf, many-branched shrub growing to about 60cm x 60cm which can sometimes be mat-forming with age. It has narrow hairy, mid-green to greyish green leaves 1-3cm long with the edges rolled under.
Grevillea ‘Mt Tamboritha’ has beautiful pale pink and cream flowers which form semi-erect racemes up to 6cm across, flowering in the summer months for a long period. It is happiest in full sun growing on well-drained soil.
Unfortunately, it is only hardy in milder parts of the UK. Alternately it can be brought under cover during the coldest months of the winter or used as an excellent conservatory plant. It prefers being planted into gritty ericaceous compost.
