Australian Native Birthflower For August

Grevillea buxifolia is quite different to the general run of grevilleas.  Its silvery/grey 5cm diameter spider flower heads stud the top of this 1-2m tall shrub most of the year.  Leaves are dull green, about 2cm long x 7mm wide.  Reasonably frost hardy, this species likes a well drained position.  Basically insect pollinated, it is unlikely to attract native birds.  There are several grey-flowering species, but this one is probably the best for ornamental uses.
