Nursery News: Leucospermum ‘Brandi Dela Cruz’

Leucospermum ‘Brandi Dela Cruz’

Product of University of Hawaii hybridization between L. reflexum and L. lineare, is more beautiful than most photographs capture and has not shown the marcescent old foliage that detracts from L. lineare. Martin Grantham, Nursery Manager,  hopes the UCSC Arboretum can offer plants in 2-3 years. I am remaking the cross with both the red and yellow forms of L. reflexum right now.

It will NOT be available at our coming Spring Plant Sale, but we had to share the first flowering!
