These ethereal blooms vary in color from snowy white to cream with hints of pale pink. Commonly called Blushing Bride proteas, these unique stems are native to South Africa and look stunning when dried.
Rumor has it that they were given their name because men would wear the flower on their lapel prior to proposing so others could know his intentions. Regardless of why you're sending these ethereal beauties, you'll always be pleased with the end result.

Pro tip: Blushing Bride Protea look beautiful dried, and can continue to last for weeks!

1) Find a Vase - You may have noticed your flowers no longer have roots, and that they’re not in soil. Bet they’re thirsty! Time to put them in your favorite vase with some fresh water.

2) Trim Those Stems - Keep those stems trimmed! Always cut your flowers at an angle so they can absorb more water & won’t suffocate on the bottom of the vase. After the initial cut, check the bottoms of your stems every couple of days, and if the ends are looking a bit slimy, just snip off an inch or so.

3) Remove Leaves - Take off any excess leaves so that all the water is funneled into the petals. Pay special attention to leaves below the water line because they’ll decompose, causing rot and bacteria to grow, which will shorten the lifespan of your blooms.

4) Mist Them - Flowers like to be misted (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?). Lightly spray down the petals from time to time to keep your stems looking fresh, and remove any buds that are clearly past their prime.

5) Keep Them Cool - Last but not least, keep your flowers in a cool area. Don’t put them near radiators, computers, televisions, fireplaces, ovens… you get the idea.
