Leucospermum 'Spider Hybrid' (Spider Pincushion) - This hybrid between Leucospermum tottum x L. formosum is a large shrub to 10 feet across by 6-8 feet tall. It forms very nice pins of salmon and golden-yellow with red-tipped stamens in late winter to early spring. It does best in the full sun with good drainage. Prune prior to flush of growth in spring to maintain smaller size. This plant came to us from Dennis Perry.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Leucospermum 'Spider Hybrid'.
