Striking in design, the yellow protea pincushion is a popular flower among those who crave something unique. Often referred to as pincushions, these blooms are native to South Africa and lend a distinct tropical touch to any centerpiece, bouquet, or decorative floral arrangement. Their bright hue adds warmth to the overall design, and the “pins” replicate the rays of the sun, making it the ideal yellow flower to incorporate into tropical arrangements. Did you know that the protea pincushion dates back to about 300 million years ago? Greek legend says that proteas were named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon, and has a mythological association to change and transformation. Use smooth-textured flowers and solid colors to accent this dynamic bloom.

Suggestions: Group them with other tropical florals, such as bird of paradise, orchids and red ginger. If you are striving for a monochromatic design, complement them with yellow ranunculus, yellow roses and just a few stems of green foliage such as dusty miller. Yellow proteas are also a favorite alternative to the traditional rose boutonniere, especially with men who prefer to wear something with a little bit of an edgy flair. They work wonderfully in bouquets with roses or calla lilies and succulents.
