Leucadendron salignum is a multi-stemmed shrub that often grows to 1 m, occasionally to 2 m. The plant resprouts after fire.
The leaves are narrowly paddle-shaped, hairless and long; longer on the female shrubs and twisted near the base. The involucral bracts are reddish in the picture, more brightly coloured than the foliage leaves lower down on the stems.
The female cones are reddish towards the tips, pale lower down, and will remain tightly closed until opened by fire (Manning, 2007).
