Protea grandiceps 4" pot


Peach Protea. One of the most beautiful of all Proteas, Protea grandiceps has tidy flowers in a ravishing shade of dark peachy red.  The bracts fringed with white bristles surround a furry peach middle.  The small shrub is very tidy (about 3' x 4') with leathery, blue/green leaves.  Excellent cut flower and great in the landscape.

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.
