Leucospermum, also commonly called Pincushion or Pincushion Protea is a genus of
about 50 species of flowering plants in the family Proteaceae.
The flowers or inflorescences of the Leucospermum oleifolium are in
clusters of up to five individual flower heads. The flowers open as a pale
yellow coloration that changes to orange, then crimson to deep red. The inflorescences have large
numbers of prominent styles, hence the reference to 'pincushion'.
