Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire - Veldfire Pincushion

Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire requires a few things to succeed in a garden. Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire grows to 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide. Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire blooms from Spring into Summer, with long lasting blooms that work well as cut flowers. Now for the challenging parts. Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire comes from parts of South Africa where the soil chemistry is far more acid and the minimum temperatures are much less of a factor. Well drained soil helps, but if plants are kept on the dry side with some soil slope it can work. Full sun helps but Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire will tolerate partial shade. Correcting the soil or water pH may be necissary. Keeping Leucospermum glabrum Veldfire in a garden that stays above 25°F is pretty crucial, though the plants have lignotubers and are sometimes capable of coming back from fire, frost, or crazy drought.
