My Tropical Garden in Cooktown, Cape York, Queensland, Australia - Welcome!
This is magnificent. Love the black leaves. Amazing how the flower cones change to pink.
How old does the plant have to be before it produces the cones?
I noticed today the cones have a slight tinge so soon they will be pink .the cones last months .This plant was in a pot the first year and was only put in the ground 2 months or so ago then the cones popped up for the first time , this is a large bush .I have another plant that is a year older and it has not grown well only 1 ft tall and never had cones ,in fact last week the turkeys decided to remove it, they tossed it 8 ft away where I found it,I pruned the leaves back and have repotted it to give it a chance to come back to good health.
