Native Bunch | Hakea - Australia's Pincushion
The Leucospermums are starting to trickle into the market. Commonly known as Pincushions or Pinwheels they are well named and it is not hard to see why they are named so! But there was a time when this Sth African flower did not dominate the cut flower industry. There was, in the 1800's and early 1900's another type of pincushion that Australians were quite obsessed with. Mostly referred to as the Pincushion Plant it was the Australian Hakea laurina that was adored as one of the finest examples of native flowers often referred to as 'our handsomest native'. The Sth African Leucospermums have increased in popularity over time and are a great way to add strong colour to any bouquet of flowers.
This week's Posies and Bunches used the 'tango' coloured Pincushion as pictured below or on our website https://www.nativebunch.com.au on the Past Flowers page. We have loved putting together our 'kaleidoscope' Posies and Bunches!
We are Native Bunch!
