Giant Protea

The king protea is a fabulous addition to any exotic garden.

Also known as the giant protea, the bloom is the national flower of South Africa from where it originates. The flowers are large and bright crimson and pink in colour, and they make fabulous cut flowers.

In the UK the giant protea seeds and plants are best grown in a conservatory as they are not hardy plants. The flowers are similar to an artichoke in shape and really do make any windowsill or conservatory garden truly unique. We have some proteas growing down in the Mediterranean biome.

In their native habitat, the protea flowers provide nectar for birds as well as bees and other flying insects.

Latin: Protea cynaroides

Average 3 seeds per packet.

Full growing instructions included in the packet.

When shopping can be good for the planet

We've taken care to source the greenest products to sell in our shop. That includes making sure that they're not overpackaged, or that they're made from recycled goods, so that they don't add to the waste mountain.

We also watch our waste at the Eden Project, recycling as much as we can, and even turning the food left overs from our cafes into soil through a giant composter!

Watch this video on how Eden 'does waste'.
