Grevillea Gaudi Chaudi is a prostrate, spreading grevillea native to south-eastern Australia. It features lovely maroon-red toothbrush flowers from spring to winter. They are a fantastic addition to a habitat garden, birds love the flowers! The foliage is tough and leathery, but quite beautiful. New foliage is reddish, turning mid to dark green as it matures.

This bank of Grevillea Gaudi Chaudi was planted 10 years ago in the High Country outside of Merrijig. A crowbar was used to plant tubestock into rock hard clay and within 5 years a complete cover had been established. It has never been watered or fertilised and it is subjected to baking sun, hard frosts and even some snow. Pretty sensational.
