Leucadendron hybrid 'Safari Sunshine'

Evergreen, Shrubs


South African native related to Protea; see that entry for culture. Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. Inflorescences form at stem tips. In some shrubby species, conelike male flower clusters sit above showy colored bracts and have the look of giant daisies. Those of Leucadendron discolor and L. tinctum make striking cut flowers that dry well. Female flower clusters are less showy and develop into conelike seed clusters.
