Leucadendron galpinii (Galpin's Leucadendron) - This is an upright evergreen shrub that grows to 6-7 feet tall and about 5 feet wide. It has soft, narrow, silvery-gray leaves. Male flowers are yellow pompons and the female flowers are silvery-gray cones flushed with pink. All of our plants are cutting grown and are female. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Apply average water. It is hardy to about 20-25 F. A very usefull and durable plant in the garden and the flowering cones are great in flower arrangements. Our mother stock was originally obtained from Dennis Perry.  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 galpinii.
