Fiery Red Devil


Red Devil – Leucadendron 2

This is my lovely fynbos plant, Leucadendron salignum.

Also known as a Red Devil, that name is clearly demonstrated here as the plant looks to be on fire in late afternoon sunshine.

Planted in my garden about four years ago and pretty much left to its own devices, it has flourished and grown as tall as me.

Which just goes to show that if you use indigenous plants, in this case Cape fynbos, they do very well.

    Speaking of “etched in flame” and “burning in the evening light,” Red Devil is also the name of a brand of lighter fluid made here in my hometown in Ohio (USA). I’d send you some to sprinkle on your plant, but it might turn your Red Devil into a Dead Devil.

      haha Yeah Red Devil seems to be quite a common name for things, like the National soccer team in Belgium apparently! πŸ˜€
      And thanks for the offer of lighter fuel, but with our Sun, my plants need no extra help to die! πŸ˜€
