Leucospermum cordifolium Seeds - Protea Family - Indigenous - Cut Flower



Leucospermum cordifolium Seeds

Family: Proteaceae
Common names: Pincushion, Bobbejaanklou, Luisiesboom, Luisiesbos


From the middle of July to the end of November groups of Leucospermum cordifolium shrubs provide vivid splashes of orange and red in the Fynbos section of Kirstenbosch.

Many visitors from all over the world may recognise the flowers from flower arrangements they have seen in their own country.

In South Africa it is a popular garden plant as well as a much-used cut flower. Leucospermum cordifolium belongs to the protea family and is indigenous to South Africa. As with all Leucospermum species, an added attraction during flowering time are the numerous birds found near the plants. In the early hours of the morning the abundant nectar flow attracts a variety of small insects, which in turn attract the Cape Sugar bird and three species of Sunbird. These insectivorous birds consume the small insects as well as the nectar, and in the process transfer pollen from one flower to the next. The flowers are not self-pollinating and depend on the small Scarab beetles and the birds for pollination.

The bid amount is for 1 Seed

We'll supply you with the germination & care instructions.
