Protea sulphurea Full Cycle

This particular Protea grows into a massive shrub, which does not look that impressive at all, until you see the flowers which are well hidden, pointing downwards very close to the ground…which is for good reason because they happen to be pollinated by the small Namaqua Rock Rat (Aethomys namaquensis) who is attracted by the yeasty smell and nectar in the flower heads. This special plant is endemic to the Western Cape province of South Africa and is found distributed from the Hex River Mountains, through the Witteberg Mountains. Mature plants are killed in the periodic wildfires which sweep its habitat, but the seeds can survive such occasions and are retained in the dried flower heads for several years before being released (by wind)
