A Protea from Chile with a beautiful symmetrical shape, that should reach in excess of 3m/9.8ft high and wide, and certainly more when mature. Its very attractive fern-like foliage is accompanied by long-lasting clusters of red and yellow flowers in the summer. These are followed by canoe shaped seed pods! It should be planted in a well drained, slightly acidic soil, in a sunny position, sheltered from the coldest of winds. Pretty hardy, it should be able to withstand temperatures down to about -6°C however.
