When Kenzie Besch married her husband, Wernich Van Heerden, better known as Van, she chose to have the protea flower as her wedding flower.
Protea flowers only grow naturally in the southern hemisphere but most notably in South Africa. They range in size from a small shrub to a 25-foot tall tree. The flowers are showy, long lasting, and tough. They typically have bright beautiful colors.
