Protea flowers are known for their unique and striking appearance. They typically have a large, round or oblong-shaped center cone surrounded by a ring of brightly coloured bracts. The bracts can come in a wide range of colours, including pink, red, orange, yellow, and white. The center cone of the protea flower is often covered in small, hairy florets, which add to its unique texture and appearance. Protea flowers can vary in size, from just a few inches in diameter to over a foot in diameter, depending on the species. Protea flowers are commonly used in floral arrangements and as cut flowers, but they are also popular as ornamental plants in gardens and landscapes.
