Red Pincushion Protea (Leucospermum cordifolium), a flower native to Southern Africa.
Leucospermum cordifolium is a rounded spreading shrub up to 6' in diameter and about 5' high, with a single main stem and horizontally spreading stems, hard green leaves and 1 to 3 large inflorescences borne at the end on the stem. The inflorescences consist of a large number of small flowers. It is the stiff protruding styles of the flowers which are the source of the common name "pincushion" for this genus. Only a few large, hard, nut-like seeds are produced by each inflorescence. In their natural environment the seeds are collected by ants, stored in the soil, and germinate only after a fire has killed the mature plants and returned the nutrients back to the soil. Sow in Spring or Fall.
