Grevillea crithmifolia   Fine-leaved Grevillea Endemic

Grevillea crimifolia whole Grevillea crimifolia close

This shrub grows up to 2 metres tall but there is also a cultivated variety which is low growing and can be used as ground cover in gardens. The dark green leaves are split into three and I suppose it is reminiscent of the foliage of plants in the Crithmum genus like Crithmum maritimum (Rock Samphire). It is not a threatened shrub but occurs in small region around the City of Perth.
