Leucadendron 'Hawaii Sunrise' PPAF (Sunrise Royal Hawaiian Cone Bush) - A compact dense growing upright shrub to 3 to 4 feet tall by 2 to 3 feet wide with narrow 1 1/2 inch red tipped lanceolate green leaves and a mass bloom at branch tips late winter through mid spring with flowers that have yellow stamens held within bright yellow bracts that have reddish tips. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil with occasional to infrequent irrigation - definitely a "drought tolerant" plant once established. This plant is new into cultivation so cold hardiness has not been tested but likely it will prove hardy at least to 25F and perhaps a bit lower. As with others in the Proteaceae it is best to avoid using any Phosphorus fertilizer. This is a very attractive compact cone bush, making it a great choice for smaller gardens and as a potted specimen. It comes from a breeding program conducted at Kula, Hawaii by John Cho of the University of Hawaii with the goal of creating a showy compact plant with short internodes. This is the second of the the series introduced with Leucadendron 'Hawaii Magic' having been introduced in 2018.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have observed it in. We also will incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing Leucadendron 'Hawaii Sunrise' PPAF.
