Grevillea_ripicola.JPG (53015 bytes)Grevillea ripicola: is a member of the Proteaceae family and is known as the Collie Grevillea.

Grevillea ripicola is a spreading shrub that may reach a height of two metres with a spread of four metres.

The lobed leaves are light green, up to eight centimetres long with pointed tips.

Reddish pink to orange red flowers are borne in clusters on the ends of branches. Flowering occurs from winter to spring. The nectar-rich blooms attract honeyeaters.

Some plants will adopt a mounded ground cover growth habit whilst others will form a dense, rounded shrub. Either way this is a handsome plant with great horticultural potential. Plants appreciate pruning after flowering.

Grevillea ripicola is native to a restricted area in Western Australia and is considered to be rare in nature.

Our specimen has survived and thrived through a drought and a number of heavy frosts.

Propagate from cuttings.
