Foliage plants take center stage in San Luis Obispo

A focus on foreground of this historic Anholm house's landscape featuring leucadendron, pygmee date palms, cordylines, and more. Garden co-designed by Gabriel Frank with Nick Wilkinson of Grow Nursery in Cambria, CA.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Conebush
Planting notes. Leucadendron is sun loving, drought tolerant and an overall lovely shrub. It can be finicky about conditions and is not the easiest plant to grow. Protect it from intense winds. Promote good air circulation. Maintain well-drained soil. “I like to add perlite or small red lava rock to help with drainage,” says Kelly. It is also particular about soil types. “Calcium and phosphorus can be detrimental to Leucadendrons, so they should not be fertilized. Adding compost annually around the base provides beneficial nutrients,” says Kelly. Compost is key.
