Originating from South Africa
An evergreen shrub with dark green up-swept older leaves which become progressively more burgundy red further up the branches, where the youngest leaves at the tips of the branches are an intense dusky red (brilliant when backlit by the sun) and are as good as any floral display. The terminal leaves, which have a distinctive pointed tip, gather in and hide the actual flower at the end of each branch which is an unspectacular woody cone structure.
Grow in well-drained poor acid to neutral soil in full sun.
Height and spread after 2 – 3 years 1m x 1m
