In the Field: Ceres
It’s no secret that we appreciate beautiful protea here at Resendiz Brothers. Our latest fave? Ceres’ queen-size bloom and crimson bracts with white feathery tips, a love-at-first-sight creation. Drawing from a lineage of P. Magnefica (queen) and P. Obtusifolia, Ceres is a gorgeous yet hardy bush that when flowering can be seen from a distance and certainly can’t be missed. This queen protea has divine deep green leaves and sturdy long stems. And since Ceres blooms late autumn through winter, there’s a bounty of beauty, love and joy to spread through the holiday season and right into Valentine’s Day.
