Silver Tree

It is a pleasure to be able to plant in the right place at the right time and be assured of success.
The recent fire burnt a large area of a Fynbos garden which included a copse of Silver Trees ( leucadendron argenteum) This is a striking tree, the largest leucadendron( up to 10m), which has grey/silver reflective leaves and definitive cone flowers.
We are replacing some destroyed and scorched trees with some young plants. Our planting is simplified by the perfect acidic well drained soil which does not require additives. The roots are sensitive, so our gentle hands skills have made transferring the plant from pot to soil less stressful.
We are looking forward to the recovery and new growth in the garden.
