The prostrate, dense Grevillea ‘Austraflora Fanfare’ has 6-inch leaves and toothbrush-shape burgundy flowers. It can spread 16 feet and will grow on both U.S. coasts.
Because Australian blooms often last for weeks, they first made their mark in this country via the cut flower world. But their foliage can introduce great texture to a garden, as is evidenced by the shrubs and trees featured on these pages: from serrated and wispy to fernlike and from subtle and shimmering to graphically bold.
