Protea nana is a charming, dainty, densely branched, small shrub, with globous, deep green, needle-like, curved leaves, pointing upwards. The branches are gracefully curved carrying beautiful cup-shaped, wine red, pendulous flowers heads, from midwinter to early summer (from June to November). New branches are green and turn red in the following season and then turn brown when mature. The flower heads may vary in color from red to bright red. This species is serotinous, which means that the seed will remain on the plant for years at a time.
