Leucadendron 'Pisa'

A vigorous grower that grows into a dense, evergreen shrub that reaches a height of eight feet tall and five feet wide.  It has silvery gray-green leaves that twist along the length of the leaf. The lime bracts surround a large silver female cone that bloom in late spring and early summer on stems to three feet long.  Prune after flowering to promote new growth and a denser habit. The name Pisa comes from the leaning Tower of Pisa and alludes to this plant's habit of leaning in the wind.
