Protea Cynaroides – King Protea 
Cynaroides comes from the Latin Cynara scolymus, the globe artichoke, which the flower heads are thought to resemble.
The so-called ‘flowers’ of the P. cynaroides are actually flower heads comprising a group of flowers in the center that are surrounded by large bracts, which are often mistaken for the petals of a single flower. 
On average, king proteas produce between 6 to 10 flowers per season, but some produce up to 35 per plant.
