Protea amplexicaulis, clasping leaf sugarbush

  • Title:  Protea amplexicaulis, clasping leaf sugarbush
  • Description:  P. amplexicaulis, is an intriguing species with blue-green Eucalpytus-like leaves and vivid-pink young growth. The unusually coloured flowers nestle amongst them on very short stems during winter. These are a deep purplish brown shade on the outside of the bracts and white on the inside. The domed central flower mass is predominately red. The low, sprawling habit of this species makes it particularly useful for cascading over banks and walls. A frost-hardy species, P. amplexicaulis will also tolerate wind, but is not usually successful in warm, humid climates.
