In the Field: Protea Neriifolia

A fall favorite here at Resendiz Brothers! With a velvety touch and Parisian flair – Protea Neriifolia more commonly called Pink or White Mink embodies sensuality and elegance. Its hardy leathery leaves help protect it against most insect attacks.

Horticulturists were growing Neriifolia in glasshouses in Europe long before it was officially named in 1810. In fact, it was one of the first protea to be mentioned in botanical literature, and from as early as the 19th century people could buy cream or pink flowering plants from nurseries in England.

There are many different varieties of Neriifolia. Here are just a few of the awesome varieties we're harvesting this month.
