Leucospermum pincushions are native to South Africa, and join many other plants from that area of the world that grow successfully here in Australia.
The common name arises from the appearance of their lovely bright flower heads. Leaves are leathery, soft and hairy. Each flower head is 15 cm in diameter. Plants in this genus can grow to 5 metres, although some are low growing and mat forming.
