The flower market is flush with Protea blushing bride (Serruria florida) and who doesn't love receiving a bunch of flowers with these beautiful, dainty flowers in it! Since its first discovery in 1773 there has always been conjecture regarding how this flower came to be known as 'Blushing bride'. The most popular belief is probably the most romantic - the French Huguenot farmers would place a blushing bride flower in their lapel when they intended to make a marriage proposal. However, as this was such a visual show of intent alerting everyone to the man's intentions it would greatly embarrass the intended bride causing her to blush.
Whichever belief of how the flower devised its name here at Native Bunch we are loving the abundance of it at the moment and have used it again in this week's Posy which you can find on our website https://www.nativebunch.com.au or check out our Blushing bride photo below!
