Leucadendron 'Safari Goldstrike' (Yellow Conebush) - This is a vigorous, compact grower to 6 feet tall. The "flowers" are composed of bright clean yellow bracts that surround the central female cone on vigorous long stems during winter and spring. Likened to a yellow version of the popular 'Safari Sunset' although a smaller grower. Has medium frost tolerance - hardy to 20-25 F. This is an excellent candidate for cut flower and foliage harvesting. Prune well after flowering to ensure a sturdy plant. This plant is from Kingflora Nurseries in New Zealand were it has been protected under Plant Breeders Rights since 1997. It is a great plant with 'Safari Sunset' and is one the most popular of the yellow flowering cut flower varieties.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Leucadendron 'Safari Goldstrike'.
