Leucadendron 'Perry's Red' - Red-tinted foliage, reddish buds and bracts set apart this 3 foot tall by 3 foot wide shrub. It prefers full sun, regular watering and no hard frost. It does poorly in humid summers. It has a similar look as Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' but the leaves are smaller and thinner and the plant doesn't get as tall.
Plant in full sun in a fairly well drained soil. Hardy to 20-25° F.
We received this nice Leucadendron salignum hybrid from Dennis Perry and grew it from 1996 until 2014. We only discontinued it because we had built up sufficient quantities of Leucadendron salignum 'Blush', which we felt was slightly nicer and had better name recognition in the trade.
Information about Leucadendron 'Perry's Red' displayed on this page is based on our research about it conducted in our library and gathered from reliable online sources. We include observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well as how the crops have performed in containers in our own nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others about this plant when we feel it adds information and particularly welcome hearing from anyone who has any additional cultural recommendations that would aid others in growing it.
