Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset'
|Description||A stunning multi-stemmed evergreen with slender red-tinged green foliage on tall, upright stems that develop attractive cone-like flowers surrounded by rich red bracts at the terminal ends in spring. Well-adapted to coastal regions, tolerating wind and salt air. Use en masse to create a carefree informal hedge or screen.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing; reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall, 6 to 8 ft. 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.|
