ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Grevillea lanigera – Woolly Grevillea (prostrate form) photographed at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, Australia.
Grevillea lanigera is a very variable species due to the fact that is occupies a range of habitats throughout its range. The best known form in cultivation is completely prostrate with a spread of about 1.5 metres. Other forms tend to be shrubby from about 30 cm to about 1.5 metres high. The leaves are hairy, narrow-oblong in shape to about 25-30 mm long. The flowers occur in clusters from the ends of the branches and are mainly red or pink with tones of white or yellow. Flowering occurs mainly in winter and spring but flowers may also occur spasmodically at other times of year.
The prostrate form is popular in cultivation and has proven to be hardy in a range of climates provide the soils are well drained. It prefers sunny or semi-shaded situations and withstands extended dry periods once established. It is hardy to at least moderate frost. Other forms are not widely grown but also seem to be reliable garden plants.
