Grevillea 'Poorinda Royal Mantle' is a prostrate dense ground cover with attractive toothed leaves and dark red toothbrush flowers. A great tough survivor plant, one of the original and best Grevillea cultivars ever released. Fantastic for banks and as a ground cover in large gardens, and can grow 6 metres wide in 2 or 3 years, given the right conditions. Also makes a great weeping standard. A good waterwise plant for low maintenance landscaping, and a great habitat plant for wildlife. Likes sunny to part shaded spots in moist well drained soil, and withstands frost with minimal damage
