Day 15 – Leucospermum saxosum


Leucospermum are evergreen shrubs native to South Africa, with these fascinating ‘pin cushion’ flowers that gradually unfurl like spindly spider legs.

They always create a stir when I have them in stock and although on the slightly pricey side, they usually last at least 3 weeks in a vase.  They also don’t need much to accompany them… maybe some tropical leaves or grass to compliment but not overshadow the unusual flower.

We have a fresh flower delivery in the shop tomorrow… I wonder what I will pick to show you next!
