Leaucadendrons are one of the most popular flowers in the florist trade. They are incredibly long lasting, they are available all year round, and come in a range of colours. They look equally happy amongst natives, or more traditional flowers. And yet, many people, although they would recognise them, wouldn't have heard of them. We grow lots of varieties of Leucadendrons at the Swallows Nest.
If you weren't familiar with Leucadendrons before, I'm sure you'll recognise them if you look for them, peeping out from a bouquet at a florist or sold in lovely large bunches at flower markets.
