Landscape Plant of the Month  Grevillea ‘Cooroora Cascade’

Grevillea ‘Cooroora Cascade’, is a beautiful, hardy and vigorous- low growing Australian native shrub, that grows well in most soil types on the east coast of Australia. And of course, grows extremely well here on Bribie Island and surrounding districts. ‘Cooroora Cascade’, has a prostrate growth habit and as it spreads, sends its orange- yellow, toothbrush shaped flower heads, along the ground in the summer and autumn months. ‘Cooroora Cascade’, can spread to 3 metres in circumference and reach 500 mm tall when mature. Like its name sake, the flowers that range from 10 cm to 25 cm long, tend to cascade below the beautiful, fine and soft, fern-like, needle thin green foliage as the plant matures. They thrive in sandy, mildly acidic to neutral pH soil. G. ‘Cooroora Cascade’, is fast growing and great for erosion control on loose banks and of course- attracts the bees, nectar eating birds and butterflies, and is an excellent plant choice for the low maintenance garden or ground cover. With all the drought about, ‘Cooroora Cascade’ is thriving, keeping the pollinators busy. Great waterwise plant and one of my- Australian native favourites indeed!
