The Ground Covers
The Grevilleas are one of the most and all-time popular shrubs that spread and grow in Australian gardens, with its exuberant and beautiful flower displays and its wide range of fascinating shapes and sizes ranging from prostrate plants and small shrubs to larger trees. Grevilleas are the perfect plants for almost any garden setting you adopt.
One of the most renowned features of the Grevilleas is its rapid dense growth. This feature makes the Grevilleas the ideal plants to use as ground covers. Grevilleas are capable of competing with the toughest weeds and thumping them.

Shop for your Grevilleas at Killuke Nursery, and you would be pleased with how your plants turn out looking and faring.
Grevilleas come in different sizes and shapes. There are Grevilleas ground cover plants that grow in a low and prostrate form. Grevilleas grow in a weeping form in which the branches hang low, and they spread out, forming a lush carpet. They are both great ground cover options.
A Grevilleas ground cover plant can spread over three, four, or more metres of land when grown under the right conditions. If you’re looking to grow on steep banks or on top of retaining walls, Grevillea plants are a perfect choice.
