Did you know? Proteas are generally known to symbolise diversity, daring, transformation and courage. There are between 1,400 and 1,600 varieties of this flower that include a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

The Protea is really distinctive due to her extraordinary colours and sturdy stem. The heart of the flower is protected with thick often hairy petals. Some varieties protect the heart of the flower very well, so you won’t be able to see a lot of the heart of the flower. Yet, other varieties will open up their hearts completely. The most popular colours of this flower are pink, orange and red.
