It's always hard when a customer calls and says they want to send a floral design with unique flowers. What's unique to one person might be the norm for another, right? Take this flower for example. Do you know what it is? It's a King Protea and to us it's a bit unique but we get them often and they are a flower that some would love while others might say "what the heck is that"! This year we have noticed that flowers with a "tropical" feel have been in heavy demand such as these Proteas along with Bird of Paradise, Ginger and Anthurium. We love them all and for someone who is looking to pick up or send flowers you don't see in the local supermarket, these flower fit the bill.
Perhaps because we've had a winter of heavy snow, folks are looking for something with an "Island" feel and these beautiful and huge blooms sure do remind us of warmer climates and sunny skies, right? These flowers originate from South Africa where they are still grown today. Although not often featured in arrangements on our website because of their rarity, a quick call to us and we'd be happy to let you know what unique blooms we have in that day!
The next time you need to send a floral gift, why not ask your florist for something unique and different, like these King Protea! www.sendingsmiles.com
