Blushing Bride Protea
Bunch size: Grower's bunch, typically 6-8 stems.
Season: Summer through Fall, very seasonal little flower.
Description: Soft, small protea. Ranges in color from blush, cream, and sometimes a bit deeper in shade on the petal tips. Clusters of 3-6 blooms per stem.
How Amy Uses It: I'm a sucker for anything that provides texture, so this is an all time favorite! Most of the time, protea is very bold and gives a tropical vibe, so I find that the Blushing Bride protea is 'soft' enough to put in traditional arrangements...providing flare, but not too much! I love to use it in all things, especially in boutonnieres.
Colors: Blush, with creamy green center
Special Care Notes: None, recut and place in fresh water. Does well in a cool location, keep out of warm, sunny places.
Possible Substitute: There isn't a close sub for Blushing Protea, if it goes off crop, then a textured accent would be best or a refund.
