Also known as the sulphur sugarbush and in the Afrikaans language is known as heuningkoeksuikerbos or Skaamblom (shy flower)
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.
