The Pincushion growing in Portugal - Leucospermum cordifolium

The following email was received by the Protea Atlas office in May 2006.

"Hello from Portugal!
We are a German couple, living in Portugal....and we are absolutely
fascinated about our protea plant in our garden.
We bought the plant last year with only two flowers and this spring it is
really wonderful and an eyecatcher among the other plants.
What a pitty that we can not be helpful at your protea project, but we
wanted to send you at least these 2 nice photos.
Good luck and take care of your wonderful South African Nature!
Best regards,
Barbara & Rainer Taeschner"
