King Protea: South Africa’s jewel

Greetings from South Africa…wish you were here!

Photo of the King Protea, South Africa’s national flower, taken in November 2005.

The first time I saw a King Protea I was amazed at its size and beauty.  Some are as large as a plate!  I instantly fell in love with these amazing flowers which dot the hills and gardens of South Africa.  I was in for a treat when I visited my parents in Arizona and found King Proteas for sale at the local flower shop.  For a mere $10, these flowers would last and beautify the home for over a month!
