It’s Flower Friday – Protea Wedding Flowers

March 27th, 2015 | Posted by wp-admin in Wedding Decoration | Wedding Florists | Wedding Flowers

The sun is shining, and it’s flower Friday. Today I want to talk about the stunning Protea wedding flowers.  Protea is the botanical and English name of this South African plant, also known as Sugarbushes.

Among the oldest families of flowers on earth, dating back 300 million years, Greek legend tells us that protea were named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon. A sea god who had the power to know all things past, present and future, Proteus was defiant and preferred to nap on the island of Pharos rather than prophesize. To deter those seeking his insights, he would change his shape at will, and it’s said that the protea flower was named after him because it, too, presents itself in an astounding variety of shapes, sizes, hues and textures to make up more than 1,400 varieties.

With its mythological associations to change and transformation, it’s not surprising that in the language of flowers, protea symbolizes diversity and courage.  Because of their unusual flowers and amazing range of varieties, the Protea is becoming a popular choice when it comes to choosing different flower designs for weddings.
