Leucospermum glabrum x L.tottum (Scarlet Ribbon)
I love the fantastic spherical bloom of this protea. I spent ages looking at this and marvelling at the structure, the perfection, the beauty. When viewed large you can see the intricate scarlet twirls pressed into the sphere like ribbons in a corsage – gorgeous.
This Scarlet Ribbon plant is a genus of plant in the Proteaceae family, native to South Africa. It also grows well in the Western Australian climate. Photo Taken in the foothills of Perth, Western Australia.
