Designer: Villa Ridge Garden Centre


Email me when this is available

A large spreading shrub producing large terminal soft pink flower heads on medium long stems. Flowers of the King Protea are quite stunning, usually produced from winter through to spring and early summer.

An adaptable Protea that will grow well in most well drained acidic soils in an open sunny situation.  Prune back current year's growth by half to two thirds in mid to late spring to encourage flower production the following year. Ensure newly planted plants have one deep watering per week during period of prolonged drought.

A good plant for use as a feature plant in a shrub border. The flowers borne of long stems are excellent for cut flowers.
