Spotlight: Protea

Protea is one of our most used flowers!

Besides looking unbelievably stunning, they're also one of the coolest flowers on the planet! Protea originates from one of the oldest plant families in the world. It’s estimated to be over 300 million years old and there are about 1500 different species.

Protea has also made waves in Greek mythology! It’s believed that Protea received its name from Proteus, the son of Poseidon.

Protea can be grown year around depending on climate and naturally blooms for only a few weeks out of the year. Australia has the most variety of Protea but they’re also commonly found in New Zealand, and South Africa.
