When it comes to leucadendron, everyone knows 'Safari Sunset'. With its deep burgundy bracts, it's by far the most the most popular variety.  But have you seen 'Maui Sunset' when its bracts take on a creamy white color and suddenly it becomes a gorgeous flower? The colorful petals of the leucadendron are called bracts (modified leaves), and the true flower is actually nestled among these bracts and covered with styles or stamens. #protea #leucadendron #wintercolor 🌾
