Leucadendrons or cone bushes are grown for their coloured foliage and the pretty cones that are produced on the female plant. The plants are woody perennials with persistent root-stocks, enabling the plants to re-sprout after fires. Crossings and hybrids of Leucadendrons are grown commercially for the cut flower industry as foliage and cones. The cones are used in both the fresh and dried state. Wild stands are also harvested for this industry. Leucadendrons can be grown as garden plants. Leucadendron salignum is commonly used with other species to cross and produce new hybrids, such as 'Safari Sunset' (L salignum x L laureolum).
