Description

The foliage and growth habit of this low-growing protea shrublet is unique. From a small woody base at ground level grow several thin unbranched erect stems covered with conspicuous elegant heart-shaped leaves. Cryptic small brown flower heads cluster at the base of the stems and are pollinated by mice.
