How to Grow Proteas
When you think Australian wildflowers or native plants, Proteas often come to mind. However, Proteas are actually native to South Africa, but share many of the growing requirements of our Australian natives, making them great plants to grow in gardens or pots. Their beautiful flowers come in a range of colours including deep pinks, pinky orange, lime and whites, and are long lasting when cut for a vase. Great for the easy care gardener as well, as they require little water once established.
