Proteas & Leucadendrons are from the Proteaceae family. Their origins were in the period, some ninety million years ago, before the great Southern land mass known as Gondwanaland seperated into Australia, Africa, Indo Malaya and South America. That is why Proteaceae are found in Southern Africa and Australia. They all evolved differently, yet the Protea, Waratah, Banksia and Leucadendron often look alike. There are around 300 varities of Protea and eighty three varieties of Leucadendron or Cone bush as it is more commonly known.
