Protea cynaroides 4" pot

King Protea. The ultimate statement! This is one of the easier proteas that tolerates a wide range of soil (provided it has an acid pH and well-drained) and will even take a slight frost.

Light: Full sun.

Water: Moderate.  It is important to water in the summer when it is very dry.

Soil: Fast draining, acid, and nutrient poor.  Be careful not to disturb the roots.

Fertilizer: Use a very low phosphorus (or no phosphorus), slow-release fertilizer, or a mild organic fertilizer such as fish emulsion.  Like all Proteaceae, it will not tolerate phosphorus.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 9
