2. Is Leucadendron native to NZ?

Leucadendron is not native to New Zealand. It is native to South Africa, where it grows in the fynbos biome. Fynbos is a type of Mediterranean shrubland that is characterized by its high biodiversity and unique plant life.

Leucadendron is a member of the family Proteaceae, which also includes the Australian genera Banksia, Grevillea, and Hakea. Proteaceae are known for their showy flowers and bracts, which are often brightly colored and attract pollinators.

3. What is the other name for Leucadendron?

The other name for Leucadendron is cone-bush. This name is derived from the fact that Leucadendron produce woody cone-like seed heads. They are also sometimes called silver-trees, due to the silvery color of their foliage. However, this name can be misleading, as not all Leucadendron species have silver foliage.

4. Is a protea a Leucadendron?

Proteas are the same as Leucadendrons. They are both members of the same family, Proteaceae, but they are different genera. Protea is the largest genus in the family, with over 800 species. Leucadendron is the second largest genus, with over 360 species.

Both proteas and Leucadendrons are known for their showy flowers and bracts. However, there are some key differences between the two genera. Proteas have flowers that are typically larger and more showy than Leucadendrons. Leucadendrons often have more slender stems and more delicate flowers.

Another difference between proteas and Leucadendrons is their geographical distribution. Proteas are native to South Africa, Australia, and New Caledonia. Leucadendrons are native to South Africa only.

5. Is there a dwarf Leucadendron?

There are a number of dwarf Leucadendron cultivars and some of the most popular include:

Dwarf Leucadendrons are a great choice for small gardens or for growing in containers. They can be grown in a variety of climates and soil types, but they prefer full sun and well-drained soil.

To care for a dwarf Leucadendron, water it regularly, especially during hot, dry weather. Feed your plant in spring and autumn with a balanced fertiliser. Prune your as needed to maintain its desired shape.

6. Where is the best place to plant a Leucadendon?

The best place to plant a Leucadendron is in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Leucadendrons are native to South Africa, where they grow in fynbos, a type of Mediterranean shrubland that is characterized by its hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters.
