  • Title:  Protea rubropilosa, Transvaal sugarbush - spring bud.jpg
  • Description:  This protea is rarely seen in cultivation, but is so outstanding that it should be considered by gardeners and nurserymen alike for its features, especially in larger gardens. The large flower heads are comprised of rich red bracts that flare open to reveal the white-tipped, domed central flower mass. This collapses to become somewhat untidy as it finishes its display but does not detract from the overall appearance. Blooms are produced in large numbers from spring to mid-summer. This is a long-lived summer-rainfall species that becomes a large (to 4 m) large shrub or small tree. It withstands very hard pruning and will spring into new growth from old wood, unlike many other species. New leaf growth, particularly on selected forms is a brilliant red, adding further to the appeal of this spectacular species. The Transvaal sugarbush is regarded as being frost-hardy and adaptable to a wide range of soil types, so long as good drainage is provided.
