Protea Red Pin Cushion is an unusual yet stunning flower that will add a touch of the exotic to your event. This novelty flower gets its name after the bloom because it looks like a pincushion stuck full of pins and is perched atop a tall, leafy stem. Ranging in colors from red to orange and yellow, stems of this unique flower are perfect for a birthday party, ladies luncheon or chic wedding. A member of one of the oldest families of flowers on earth, protea flowers date back 300 million years and, according to Greek legend, are named after Proteus the son of Poseidon. Incredibly mystical and slightly mysterious, protea flowers symbolize transformation, diversity and courage. Fabulous on their own, red pin cushion protea flowers will also look wonderful when combined with lilies and orchids and calendulas. Incredibly magnificent, these flowers are truly one of a kind.
