King of Hearts – King Protea Arrangement

With Korean Maple and Sweet William

Magnificent, splendiferous, like a dragon’s egg in flower form – how King Proteas have won our hearts!

This week your winning hand includes fresh maple, apricot spray chrysanthemums and the poppiest of sweet william clusters. Ready to brighten up the most unseasonable of summer days.

But the pièce de résistance? Your glorious and ginormous King Protea. This regal beauty will slowly open and splay out a full crown of petals in a soft pinky silver palette of colours.

Hold on to this singular beauty, it’s one of those rare blooms that remarkably looks even better dried than fresh! No special treatment required, it’ll simply dry in place, and when the rest of your arrangement is finished, simply move it to it’s own vase and let it stand tall like a sculptural piece of art
