Grevillea rosmarinifolia

Know this plant well,quite commonly planted in my home county of Cornwall and sometimes seen it on the Isle of Wight. Know the yellow one as well G.sulphurea.They prefer acid soils so I think that is why they are not commonly planted on the island, even though our climate would suit them.

Nice to see choice garden plants on iSpot!
