Description

“Proteas could become one of the world’s finest commercial cut flowers, along with roses, carnations, and gladioli, were they plentiful enough”, wrote gardening legend Sima Eliovson in her book Proteas for Pleasure, published in 1965 (first edition).
Her words were prophetic; Eliovson’s passion for proteas was ahead of its time. Today, every garden centre in Gauteng stocks protea plants suitable for local gardens and protea sales have surged in the past five years.

Mrs Eliovson’s vast knowledge of plants and her experience in garden cultivation have enabled her to present a masterly study of the Protea family which will help every gardener to grow more beautiful specimens of this, South Africa’s national flower
