Protea effusa,  Scarlet sugarbush

Email

  • Title:  Protea effusa, Scarlet sugarbush
  • Description:  A particularly lovely but very variable species, P. effusa can be a prostrate mat-forming plant or a shrub of 1.5 m in height. Foliage is variable in width, and the flowers, while always a distinctive bowl shape, may vary from greenish-bronze colourings to quite rich red and are carried over the winter months. They have been used as cut flowers successfully. Not always an easy subject to cultivate, the ease of which is determined by the form grown and where it originates from. In general terms, this species resents warm, humid conditions as it comes from mountainous regions of South Africa’s Cape. Cooler, dry conditions are favoured by P. effusa and well-drained soils are essential.
