King Protea in BloomOne of the things I wanted to see while in South Africa last year was protea in bloom in its natural habitat. We saw lots of protea growing wild and in bloom all across the country, but we were a little early to see king protea in bloom. However, on our very last day in the country we stopped for what was to be a quick stroll through the Harold Porter Botanical gardens and there they were: A garden of king protea, some of which was already in bloom. What a perfect end to our trip!
