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.
