Leucadendron 'Hawaii Sunrise' PP31,705 (Sunrise Royal Hawaiian Cone Bush) - A compact dense growing upright shrub to 3 to 4 feet tall by 2 to 3 feet wide with narrow 1 1/2-inch red tipped lanceolate green leaves and a mass bloom at branch tips late winter through mid-spring with flowers that have yellow stamens held within bright yellow bracts that have reddish tips.

Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil with occasional to infrequent irrigation - definitely a "drought tolerant" plant once established. This plant is new into cultivation so cold hardiness has not been well tested but likely it will prove hardy at least to 25F and perhaps a bit lower. As with others in the Proteaceae it is best to avoid using any Phosphorus fertilizer. This is a very attractive compact cone bush, making it a great choice for smaller gardens and as a potted specimen.

Leucadendron 'Hawaii Sunrise' comes from a breeding program conducted at Kula, Hawaii by John Cho of the University of Hawaii with the goal of creating a showy compact plant with short internodes. It was the result of crossing a selection of Leucadendron stelligerum with a selection of Leucadendron discolor. It received US Plant Patent PP31,705 in April 2020. This is the second of the Royal Hawaiian series introduced following the introduction of Leucadendron 'Hawaii Magic' in 2018.
