Jester Conebush

Leucadendron 'Jester'

SKU
41006
Stunning pink variegation develops a brilliant red flush as the weather cools. Deep red bracts surrounding attractive cone-like flowers top the branches late winter into spring. A great frost and drought tolerant accent for minimal-care, low-water landscapes. Plant en masse for an informal screen. Excellent foliage for floral arrangements. Evergreen.
