Email

  • Title:  Protea nitida (syn. P. arborea), Waboom, Wagon tree
  • Description:  Often either a small tree or a large, multi-trunked shrub, this distinctive species has been grown as a collectors item in many countries for years. It has landscape qualities with its solid trunk and large blue-green glaucous leaves and young leaf growth which is usually a striking pink or red shade. The greenish-silver flower heads have no picking attributes as they are heavy and quickly collapse on opening, but are spectacular on the plant. They are generally produced over late winter and spring with odd flowers at other times. This is a long-lived species and may reach 100 years in suitable conditions. Most well-drained soils are suitable for P. nitida, it thrives in either sun or semi-shade, and will tolerate frost to -5 ºC.
