Protea Blushing Bride is one of the most sought after wedding flowers. These are truly one of a kind. Think of a tropical beauty, and you get the protea Blushing Bride, which is actually a member of the Proteaceae, grown by Zuluflora in South Africa. The Latin name for this flower is Serruria. Pointed petals that range from ivory-white to pale green to pale pink, open to reveal a blush center, hint the name, Blushing Bride. Combine with cymbidiums and spider chrysants for a tropical bouquet or combine with ranunculus and orlaya flowers for a romantic bouquet. Get inspired by this selection of Instagram posts about this wedding cutie.

Protea Blushing Bride's season starts mid June. Serruria Florida has a soft pink, greenish tone and blooms till the end of October. This special looking star-shaped soft and small Protea with a stem lengths from 30-60cm and are sold by bloom count as well. They can range from 1-5 blooms, 5-10 blooms and even more per bunch. A nice extra is that they have a long vase life.
You probably wonder where it found its name: Blushing Bride. Seems that men went to propose with a protea like this in their pocket, and so it's called Blushing Bride.

Zuluflora - Grower of Blushing Bride

Zuluflora uses its experience to perfectly identify the best areas to grow certain varieties. For example, Blushing Brides are better suited to the dry arid Western Cape.

Neil Hall is a grower of protea Blushing Bride.


"I always knew from a young age I wanted to work outdoor. And being on a farm is most definitely something I treasure. The people who work and live on our farm have become part of our family and of our daily life. When I think back on the beginnings of Zuluflora, one of the things that stood out to me was the unity. I realized that when I could get together with some like-minded growers, this unity is really a strength. That has been proven for me over these last three or four years."
