Protea Plants are difficult to find, as they are not mass-marketed and the propagators typically want new plants for their own use (or they only sell wholesale in large quantity). So the best way for folks to buy  “just a few” plants for their own landscape is to visit events like Del Mar Spring Show or Avocado Festival.

  • Del Mar Garden Show
    One weekend only!
    March 6, 7, 8, 2020
    (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • Avocado Festival
    April 19, 2020
    9am – 5 pm
    (on Elder St. in the Farmers Market section)

For large quantity sales, contact the following propagators for price and availability. Please note: Most of these nurseries are on private property and sell to retail and wholesale businesses only in large quantities. For 2 or 3 plants these businesses cannot help you. It would be better to try the events listed above.
