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.

We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Leucadendron galpinii.
