“Among the oldest families of flowers on earth, Greek legend tells us that the Protea flower was named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon. A sea god who had the power to know all things past, present and future, Proteus preferred not to prophesize, so to deter those seeking his insights, he would change his shape at will. It's said that the Protea flower was named after him because it, too, presents itself in an astounding variety of shapes, sizes, hues and textures”


With its mythological associations to Change and Transformation, ‘Protea’ symbolizes diversity, transformation, courage and strength.
