Water Wise Plant of the Week: Leucadendron

Leucadendron varieties: ‘Safari Sunset’, ‘Jester’, ‘Summer Red’

These South African varieties will introduce some unique color and texture to your low water landscape.  These evergreen shrubs will range from 3 to 8 feet tall and wide with showy, rich red bracts that sit atop branches of variegated foliage in late winter into spring, depending on the variety.  Thriving in full sun with a well drained soil, this drought tolerant can be a great stand alone focal point or even used as a hedge for a vibrant splash of foliar color!

Glendora Gardens maintains nearly 10 acres of nursery and growing grounds, including carefully arranged plant beds, koi ponds, and shade houses full of creative treasures. We welcome you to come explore the garden, wander among the wildlife, and be inspired!
