Leucadendron

Search Leucadendron
Although Leucadendrons are native to South Africa they are grown world wide wherever a warm niche in a garden can be found. Having come from a hot climate these plants thrive in the hot spots of your garden, no frosts for these guys, they love the heat. Drought tolerant and low maintenance when the right conditions are achieved. Stunningly colourful with each stalk ending in a brightly coloured inflorescence. Leucadendrons usually reach up to aprox 1.2-1.8m high and wide. They like very well drained, acid soil and a quick cut back after flowering to maintain their shape and size. Flowers are great for picking and last well in the vase.
