In the Field: Pink Duke
Spring is a long way off, but if you could use a winter pick-me-up right this minute, we have the perfect antidote. ‘Pink Duke’… a bright, cheery and vibrant protea—this lovely cultivar produces large, rose-pink blooms with a light pink central dome and white feathery tips. It has the soft green leaves of the P. magnifica (queen) and the clear velvety, pink flower of the P. Trish Compacta.
There is no doubt that Pink Dukes bring an abundance of winter cheer out in the fields. But once harvested, arranged and displayed they are contagious – the perfect pick-me-up.
