Leucadendron Jester - Sunshine Conebush

Leucadendron jester will brighten up a garden even when it is not blooming. The colorful variegated foliage is quite a show by itself. The long lasting flower cones are surrounded by bright red bracts from mid-Winter through the Spring. Leucadendron Jester grows to 5 feet tall and wide. The plants are widely tolerant of soil types but require decent drainage and are quite drought tolerant. Leucadendron Jester grows well in full sun and will tolerate Winter temperatures that dip into the low 20°s F.
