Wedding Flower Inspiration: Protea

by in — Updated July 23, 2020

Protea are some of the most stunning flowers on Earth! Because Protea have such an extensive array of forms, they are named after the Greek god Proteus, who would change his form at will. One of the most common types used in bouquets is the King Protea (South Africa’s national flower), as seen in most of these photos. Sometimes called sugarbush, these ancient flowers are natve to Africa and Australia but now grow in other parts of the world. Their unique shape makes for bouquets and centerpieces that you and your guests will never forget. They also make for a surprisingly easy DIY bouquet, using a single protea surrounded by simple leaves.
