Protea repens (white) 4" pot


Lovely, large protea.  Tall, pointed buds open into beautiful flowers with white bracts surrounding a white furry cone.  Excellent cut flower and last well in the vase and on the bush.  One of the easier proteas to grow and bloom.  Attracts hummingbirds.

(Proteaceae)

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
