The plant growing at UCSC Arboretum is at least 6′ tall and 10′ wide, much larger than any of the online descriptions state. It does have a fairly compact form and the bract coloration is a cherry red with a yellow cone.
All the usual stuff for Protea family plants. Full sun, well drained soil, drought tolerant once established, no phosphorus.
