Protea venusta


Beautiful low growing spreading shrub with a mounding habit. Its waxy small flower heads open from bright pink in bud to pink and white. Its a lovely small growing protea but can spread to 6-9'wide. Excellent for embankment plantings or to fall over the edge of a wall. It flowers in late summer when not many other proteas are flowering. It is very cold hardy and unlike most proteas will flower well in either full sun or partial shade. Grows in elevations of 1700-2000 metres in South Africa. It does not thrive in humid environments. Excellent container plant.
