Leucadendron salignum x laureolum 'Ebony' PP #23,258
|Description||Add year-round, eye-catching contrast, with dramatic black foliage topped by small cone-like flowers surrounded by a ray of showy, deep-red bracts in winter. An easy-care and waterwise option. Loves hot sun and lean, well-drained soils, but is less demanding than most of its relatives, even tolerating some clay. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Allow soil to dry between waterings.|
|Mature Size||Reaches 5 to 6 ft. tall and wide.|
|Care||Provide lean, very well-drained, sandy to loamy soil. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Fertilize sparingly - benefits from an occasional iron supplement; avoid fertilizers containing phosphorus. Prune occasionally to encourage dense growth.|
