Protea repens Iceberg, Sugarbush

Email

  • Title:  Protea repens Iceberg, Sugarbush
  • Description:  Protea repens, the famed sugarbush, which all proteas are now commonly called, is named for the copious supplies of sweet nectar it produces which is so loved by birds. It has also been a sugar source for early settlers in South Africa’s Cape Province. At maturity these large bushes can attain a height of 4 m, but under cultivation it is more usual to see them at 2.5 m with some picking and pruning to keep them to more manageable proportions. The open, funnel-shaped sticky heads of colourful bloom can range from a greenish-white through cream to pale pinks and intense reds. Some are larger than others, some are narrow, others flare wide open in stunning fashion. 'Iceberg', the image used here, is a much bigger flowered form than usual and a more greenish-white than most 'white' variants. Flowering time varies according to the origin of the plant. It is not usually considered a cut flower
