A low growing densely spreading evergreen groundcover shrub to under 1 foot tall by up to 15 feet wide. Its 7 inch long leaves, very coarsely cut in a saw tooth pattern, are a good foil to the brush-like clusters of dark red flowers that emerge from silky buds from later winter through late fall.
Full sun to moderate shade. Plant in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to very little during summer – quite drought tolerant once established.
G. gaudichaudii x G. longifolia – arose as a spontaneous seedling in the garden of Dr. Ann Warren of Warrandyte, Victoria.
