Plant of the Month: Grevillea Green Carpet

Our Plant of the Month for March is the Grevillea Green Carpet which is a prostrate evergreen dense groundcover which grows to 30cm high by 2 metres wide. This very hardy plant has soft silver-green foliage and a profusion of cream-white flowers in Spring. It is great used on embankments, in rockeries, as a weed suppressant and for planting under trees. It prefers to grow in a sunny spot with well drained soil but it does tolerate partial shade. Grevillea Green Carpet does well in coastal conditions including salt spray, light frost and dry spells. Water it well after planting until established and trim after flowering to keep it looking good in your garden.
