We are always looking for interesting deer resistant shrubs and ground covers. Grevillea is one such plant. Grevillea comes from Australia and tends to be very tough, tolerating drought and nutrient deficient soils. One new variety of grevillea is the yellow flowering “Molongolo” variety. Growing two feet tall by six to eight feet wide it would be a great groundcover for a full sun area. It will also cascade over and down rocks.

Grevillea laveandulacea “Penola” is a variety that has red flowers on grey leaves. Growing to five feet tall and eight feet wide it is quite striking, adding a touch of grey to the garden.
