WOW! in the Garden: Leucadendron saligenum 'Safari Sunset'

Also called sunshine conebush, this plant was found growing in the Golden Gate State Botanical Garden in San Francisco. It comes originally from South Africa. I used Derwent Inktense pencils and blocks to sketch the plant onto cotton fabric, then painted with a fabric medium to release the ink, and heat set. Quilted on a long-arm machine.
