An impulse buy last week.  So far I am 0 for 1 on Leucadendrons.  My 'Jester' died a few weeks after I got it, before I even got it planted.  Grrrrr!  This vastly less flashy species went right into the ground near Calothamnus villosus, which it resembles enough to make my one-of purchase not so bad.  

A very informative article on L. linifolium here.

  1. Love it! Oh how I wish Leucadendron were growable here.

  2. I've got no problem with one-off plantings, especially until the plant proves itself in your garden. This is how I chose almost every plant I grow. (I'd love to be able to grow that one!)

  3. This species is one I never fully embraced my time in San Diego - now I get the merits! Xeric and thrifty, yet lush and green.

  4. It is very pretty when it flowers, worth planting, so I hope it does well for you.
