FFF10 - PROTEA NERIIFOLIA

A bouquet of Protea neriifolia x susannae "Pink Ice" for today. Protea neriifolia is part of an ancient plant family, the Proteaceae, which had already divided into two subfamilies before the break-up of the Gondwanaland continent about 140 million years ago. Both the Proteoideae and the Grevilleoideae occur mainly in the southern hemisphere. This is the hardiest of all proteas, and well suited to low maintenance, low water use gardens. These spectacular blooms are useful in floral arrangements, fresh or dried.

    1. I don't know why the comment field disappears as the site loads. A mystery! I am not replying to Andrea but this is the only way I can post a comment. I wanted to say I have never seen protea growing! Wonderful photograph.

  13. Nick is there any want that you can put the html code under the button visible for me to pick up. I don't know how to do that separately. When I copied it, the picture did not come out with the code.... just the code on my sidebar. Sorry, I am not too computer savvy. Also tried to add the photo above the code with no joy....Did not work ( for me) Thanks an let me know. LIke having the photo with the code on the sidebar so folks can see the picture and then goes right to you when the click on it., Appreciate it! Jeanne
