Proteas are attractive shrubs originating from South Africa which can be cultivated commercially in Western Australia. The most common proteas belong to the genera Protea, Leucadendron and Leucospermum (pincushion) and Serruria (blushing bride). Protea production in Western Australia began in the mid-1980s and peaked in the mid-1990s. Climate and soils are suited to proteas and plantings are centred around Perth and Busselton. Proteas are grown for the local, export and interstate markets.
