Protea Grandicolor (P. grandiceps x P.aurea hybrid)

Email

  • Title:  Protea Grandicolor (P. grandiceps x P.aurea hybrid)
  • Description:  A very unusual cross, this hybrid cultivar from an Australian nursery combines features from both parent plants in a unique combination. The greenish-cream bracts which deepen to beige at the base, have a delicate pinkish-red rim, prominent hairs similar to the P. grandiceps parent and surround rusty-red centres. The size of the flower heads is intermediate between the parents and they are produced during winter and spring. They have good lasting qualities and are regarded as suitable for cut flowers. Leaves are a smaller version of the thick, leathery, ovate leaves of the P. grandiceps parent. Growth habit is upright to 2.5 m, which is more typical of the P. aurea parent than P. grandiceps which is a bushy large shrub. P. ‘Grandicolor’ is an easy garden subject, having proven frost hardy to -5 ºC , adaptable to most free-draining soils and tolerant to winds.
