Enjoy Protea,The Essential Autumn Flower

Fall blooms are a continuation of the lovely, vibrant colors we see in nature everywhere this time of year. Proteas are an essential autumn flower and one of the best ways to highlight the fall season in your garden or in your home. With winter knocking on the door, the multicolored varieties of protea delight our senses and add a touch of autumn to our lives.

Proteas are resilient to dropping temperatures and come in an array of colors and sizes. The experts of floral design at Rose Hill Flowers in the Nashville area can help you with all your questions about how to grow and display many different varieties of protea. Here are some of our favorite designs to help you successfully include protea in your fall celebrations.

Pincushion Protea

Pincushion proteas are the most popular version of this beautiful bloom. This exotic bloom features long, thin petals that swoop upwards to create a curved bowl shape around the center of the flower. Available in bright, sunny colors like red, yellow, and orange, these gorgeous blooms make a bold statement in any floral design.

Kaleidoscope Bouquet

The yellow protea in our Kaleidoscope design adds flair to the bouquet of otherwise softer blooms. This tropical bloom, like those currently being cultivated in South Africa to be more disease-resistant, fits right into our sunny Mango Salsa design. Red proteas bring fresh fall texture to our Basket Full of Fall Bouquet that highlights the plethora of diversity available in fall colors and designs.
