Coastal Gem Grevillea. Copious amounts of pink flowers tinged with yellow make this an excellent low shrub for the landscape. The arching habit lends itself as a groundcover or will soften the top of a retaining wall. It flowers in flushes from spring to fall and is irresistible to hummingbirds. One of the most cold hardy members of the Protea family.
