Grevillea rosmarinifolia subsp. rosmarinifolia has a patchy distribution in Victoria, from south west Gippsland to outer northeast fringes of Melbourne, west to Skipton and the Brisbane Ranges, to Bendigo in north central region, extending to near Wodonga in north-east. In some areas where it is planted on road verges and gardens near bushland it has escaped into adjacent native vegetation and has hybridised with local indigenous species. This is particularly noteworthy at McDonald Park, Ararat, in western Victoria, where it has hybridised with the local form of Grevillea alpina. Grows in open eucalypt forest or woodland or in riparian shrub associations, on rocky slopes or near creeks.
Grevillea rosmarinifolia subsp. rosmarinifolia is widely cultivated throughout Australia and overseas.
