Groenkreupelhout Overview

The largest of the pincushion group of proteas, the green tree pincushion is absolutely spectacular when in flower. The large rounded bushes are then covered with bright yellow pincushion flowers which glow among the deep green leaves and are further decorated by the antics of the Cape Sugarbirds which feast on the plentiful nectar.
