Plant of the Week: Leucadendron ‘Safari Sunset’ is a densely branched shrub growing up to 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide, bearing multi-colored flower bracts through fall and winter. These showy bracts open in a pale shade of red, blush deep wine, then pale from the center to a golden-yellow toward the end of the season. This plant is a tough cultivar that can handle frost, alkalinity and clay soils. A wonderful garden plant for specimen planting, flower arrangements or as a hedge or wind screen. Hardy 25F. Leucadendron ‘Safari Sunset’ is available this week in one gallon containers.
