Leucadendron is one of 80 varieties belonging to the Protea family. They are native to South Africa. They can grow as tall as 16 m. The plant when cut is very hardy and relatively long lasting, upto two weeks ideally.
Half of the species carry the seed in a fire proof pod. The seeds are only released after a fire has killed the plant.
