Name that Taal Monument plant

Hi yall,

This pic comes from the same set as the King Protea, both taken at the Taal Monument in Paarl. Not sure what it is but I like it and presume it is indigenous… Any takers?

    Hey Ross and mol-d.

    I think you’re right. Its the dark-red variety of the one I have as a pot plant and blogged about earlier. See http://sprig.co.za/?p=105

    I thought it might have been related – similar leaf structure. So, is this also non-South African like the one you posted about?
