This is a vigorous tall and erect grower to over 8 feet tall. The flowers (female cone) start out coloring red in summer and by winter are a deep wine color. In late winter ‘Safari Sunset’ takes on a yellow coloring in the center of the bracts while still retaining the red on the outer surfaces. This is a tough cultivar that can handle frost alkalinity and clay soils. This is an excellent candidate for cut foliage harvesting. Prefer full sun and low water.

Height: 8′ – 10′
