Protea laurifolia 'Rose Mink' - A new protea cultivar from Dennis Perry that grows to be an upright shrub to 10 feet talll with gray-green laurel-like leaves. Large flowers heads appearing in mid winter have silvery-pink bacts tipped with black and white hairs. Plant in full sun in most any soil including clay and alkaline soils. Once established this plant is drought tolerant, requiring little irrigation. Fairly frost hardy - a good Protea for southern California gardens.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Protea laurifolia 'Rose Mink'.
