Australian Native Bouquets by Blooming Brides

by | Bride, Flowers


I am so fascinated by Australian native wedding bouquets, so when Rita of Blooming Brides sent over some her latest Australian native flower creations, I wanted to share them with you!

Australian natives are a beautiful choice for wedding flowers- there are so many rich, earthy colours and unusual textures.

    Almost all of those flowers are South African not Australian!
    They do look lovely though.

    Although these are beautiful, leucodendron, leucospermum and protea’s are all south african not Australian plants.

    Samcumber it is true… leucadendron and leucospermum are both endemic to Sth Africa. Problem is they do so well here and because of their position in the Protea family, of which Australia has many representative species, they have long been marketed commercially under the umbrella ‘natives’. The term ‘natives’ seems to represent anything with a Gondwanan lineage! There are several ‘non-Australian native’ varieties here, but they do work well with an Australian native looking theme. Perhaps it should be titled Flower bouquets incorporating some Australian Natives!

    Hi Loved the native bouquets. I am a grower and wholesaler of native flowers both aust and sth African in South Australia.
    Both groups are usually classed together as Australian native flowers. The variety of native flowers is mind boggling and their long lasting vase life makes them a perfect choice for any type of arrangement and function.
