This is a great plant to add winter colour to a garden. With a common name of Golden conebush it doesn't have flowers but it has bracts that are a golden yellow colour and very striking. It will grow into a nice rounded shrub up to 2m tall with oblong leaves all year round. With a greater tolerance to varying soil types than some Protea it is an ideal candidate to grow where some protea might have previously failed. It is tolerant to wind and drought once established and looks great in a rockery or Mediterranean garden. Protect from severe frost.
