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 our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Leucadendron 'Hawaii Sunrise' PPAF.
