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. Hardy to 20-25 F.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Leucadendron 'Perry's Red'.
