Protea – Little Prince
Protea cynaroides – ‘Little Prince’
A lovely low protea growing to 1m tall and 75cm wide with spoon shaped, green leaves. In autumn and spring it produces white and pink flowers that are extremely ornamental.
It is a compact protea, perfect for large containers and pots. It is also fantastic in the garden as a specimen shrub or mass planting display.
It should be grown in full sun in well draining, acidic soils. It is drought tolerant and can withstand light frost. It needs to be fertilised with a low phosphorous mix, like a native fertiliser mix.
