Leucadendron “Safari Sunset” also known as Safari conebush.
This is a vigorous, tall and erect grower up to 2-3 mtrs but can be
kept lower and more dense with regular pruning. It has green leaves
and very deep red-colored bracts forming on longs stems beginning in
late summer. This plant is a tough
cultivar that can handle full sun, part shade, frost, alkalinity and clay soils. This is a
wonderful garden plant for specimen planting or as a hedge or wind
screen. Its cut stems are excellent for large arrangements and it has
remained one of the most popular and longest grown of the Proteaceae for
cut flower production. This plant originated in New Zealand in the
1960s and was the result of crossing Leucadendron laureolum with L.
salignum (Red form) by a Mr. Ian Bell.
