What native is what?!
A lot of florists out there can sometimes assume that all native flowers are Australian…. This can come at a nasty shock!
Proteas, king proteas, leucadendron, bird of paradise, pin-cushions, blushing bride are all native to South Africa!
It is detrimental to know the difference as a lot of florists make native arrangements using South African natives for funeral services for diggers that have passed or other iconic Australians. It is vital as a florist to know about your products to make sure you use the right flowers for the right job. Remember, always do your research!!
