Leucadendron salignum 'Winter Red' (Conebush)

'Winter Red' Conebush


Tough and eye-catching, Leucadendron salignum 'Winter Red' is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub grown for its attractive bracts and dazzling foliage of narrow leaves, turning intense purplish-red in the cooler months. Often mistaken for flowers, leathery red and cream bracts surround cones at the branch tips. These bracts are long-lasting and stunning in fresh and dried arrangements. Native to South Africa, this pretty shrub is heat and drought-tolerant once established.

  • Grows upright with an open habit to 3-4 ft. high (90-120 cm) and 4-6 ft. wide (120-180 cm).
  • Easily grown in sandy, acidic, well-drained soils in full sun. Will grow in poor soils. Occasional to infrequent watering. Heat and drought-tolerant once established. Use little to no Phosphorus fertilizer.
  • Deer resistant
  • Great for Mediterranean gardens and xeriscaping. Perfect for screens or hedges.
  • Virtually disease free and pest free.
  • Prune back after flowering to encourage a bushy, compact habit and prevent leggy growth.
  • Root semi-ripe cuttings with bottom heat in summer
  • Native to South Africa
