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 that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Leucospermum 'Spider Hybrid'.
