  • Title:  Leucadendron laureolum Rewa Gold (syn. L. decorum) Golden conebush, Louriertolbos
  • Description:  This species has probably been cultivated by gardeners in several countries for longer than any other leucadendron species. It is an extremely variable species and can vary in bract colour from pale lemon to the richest gold shades. Bract size, stem length and growth habit are all variable also. Typically it is a bush of some 2 m with a dense, vigorous habit and produces large golden-yellow bracts on long stems during winter and early spring. Male plants are often less vigorous and generally have deeper yellow, smaller bracts. The well-known cultivar 'Rewa Gold' is illustrated, but there have been many others over the years. This is a frost-hardy species, tolerating frosts as low as -6 ºC once established. This species is particularly sensitive to poorly drained soils and requires full sun to bract and colour well.
