The flower heads develop at the tips of very long, upright stems clothed with oblong, dark green leaves. Each is large and goblet shaped (30–50 mm wide; up to 10 cm across when fully opened)
and features glowing wine-red bracts spirally arranged around the small central flower. As the flower matures it develops an attractive, large woody cone, which becomes a prominent feature in
late-season flowers. ‘Safari Sunset’ has a long vase life and the flower heads do not bruise easily, as seen in some other members of the protea family.
