A member of the Protea family, the Blushing Bride flowers in spring and produces a papery white petal, or floral leaf, that surrounds a feathery tuft of white to pinkish flower. They come in limited colors of white or pink.   It is thought that this plant received its name because of its traditional use in bridal bouquets in South Africa.

The bride carried a robust bouquet of ivory French tulips, soft pink garden roses, pink Blushing Bride protea and white cattleya orchids.
