Generally a neatly rounded shrub, its brilliant red, orange or yellow flower heads and pin-like protrusions grab attention, and give this special plant its common name.
A stylish, drought-tolerant focal point, border or filler, leucospermum cordifolium is easy to grow, and its vibrant summer flowers attract birds and butterflies. Also enjoy its great-looking, long-lasting cut flower.
Leucospermum thrives in full sunlight to partial shade with good circulation. It prefers well-drained, acidic soil and needs little water in the summer months.
