Abstract: The major focus of the University of Hawai‘i’s Protea Research Project has been the development of improved cultivars of Leucospermum (pincushion) for commercial growers in Hawaii. This program has created 102 new cultivars that have been released to Hawai‘i growers in the past five years. These hybrids were selected from more than 6000 hybrid progeny that were bred and evaluated since 1995. This publication documents the genetic backgrounds and some characteristics of these hybrid pincushion proteas.
