The white flowering form of Protea repens has the usual rows of acutely pointed involucral bracts around the flowerhead, the inner ones appearing white in the photo, the outer ones cream.
The bud on the left is still greenish white. Long side-branches have already grown from the stem tip since the flowerhead started to grow there. The stems, mainly pale orange, are variably coloured along their lengths.
The leaves spaced along them have rounded tips and taper into their pale cream petioles. The narrow to spatulate leaves become up to 15 cm long (Manning, 2007; Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010).
