Serruria florida or more commonly called Blushing Bride, has become one of the hottest flowers in floral design. This delicately beautiful flower of the Proteaceae family is thought to have received its common name 'Blushing Bride' because of its traditional use in bridal bouquets in South Africa. Serruria florida has papery white petals surrounding feathery tufts of white to pink flowers and soft needle-like foliage. 💕#protea#flowers#wedding
Protea aristata (aristata = sharp-tipped leaves), was first collected in 1928 near the town of Ladismith in the Cape Province. Although thought to be common in the Seweweekspoort region, aristata could not be found again until 1953, prior to which it was believed for quite some time that it had become extinct. Aristata, also known as Ladismith sugarbush, Ambassador sugarbush, Small pine sugarbush and Christmas sugarbush, has become one of South Africa's most famous proteas in spite of its relatively late 'discovery'.
Aristata blooms – June through August! This distinctive protea has pine-needle like foliage which provide a lovely background to its striking large and bright crimson flowers. #protea#flowers#summer
Goldenvoice, the promoter of Arroyo Seco Weekend, is calling this two-day rock, jazz and jam festival “multigenerational,” rather than “family-friendly,” and from what we saw yesterday at the event, they were right! It's a festival where someone can go with their grandma, mom, sister or toddler, and we had fun putting flowers on their heads. #cagrown#flowers#festival
