Leucadendron Gold Strike
Looking for a winter pick-me-up? With one step into the Gold Strike field, you can escape to a ‘botanical retreat’ filled with rays of golden sunshine, leaving the winter blues behind. Some call this gorgeous yellow foliage – Yellow Conebush, Cone Bush, Sunshine Conebush, Sunshine Protea Safari Gold Strike or simply leucadendron Gold Strike.
Whatever you want to call this winter foliage - it is amazing during this time of the year! It’s one of the most colorful leucadendron - a cross of Strobolinum and Laureolum. Hardy and tall, Gold Strike has narrow oblong, green leaves spirally arranged on the branches. What people first think are flowers that look like yellow tulips, are actually… bright-yellow bracts or leaves.
