Protea Pacific Queen

Email

  • Title:  Protea Pacific Queen
  • Description:  A significant cultivar, as it is probably the first P. magnifica hybrid to be identified and named and was first marketed in New Zealand during the 1970’s. A bushy, spreading shrub, often wider than it is high, and generally reaching to 1.5 m by up to 2 m in width. The flowers are quite large at 140 mm in length although smaller than the average P. magnifica. Colouring is a soft pink with the fluffy bracts edged in silvery white hairs and culminating in black tufted tips. Stem length is comparatively short at 25 – 30 cm on average. The main flowering period is through spring into mid-summer. While not noted as having commercial picking potential, ‘Pacific Queen’ is a compact shrub for the home garden and lasts well when cut for floral art purposes. Generally easy to grow in most free-draining soils and requires open, sunny positions to thrive. Frost hardy to -3 ºC.
