From the middle of July to the end of November, groups of Leucospermum cordifolium shrubs, provide vivid splashed of orange and red in the Fynbos section of Kirstenbosch.
Many visitors from all over the world may recognise the flowers from flower arrangements they have seen in their own country.
Nurseries in Israel, California, Hawaii, Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand produce large amount of cut flowers of hybrids and cultivars of this South African plant. In South Africa it is a popular garden plant as well as a much-used cut flower.
