Exotic Flowers (Protea cynaroides)

Exotic  Flowers (Protea cynaroides)

The King Protea (Protea cynaroides) is a flowering plant. It is a distinctive Protea, having the largest flower head in the genus. The species is also known as Giant Protea, Honeypot or King Sugar Bush. It is widely distributed in the southwestern and southern parts of South Africa of the fynbos region.
The King Protea is the National Flower of South Africa. It also is the flagship of the The Protea Atlas Project, run by the South African National Botanical Institute.
The King Protea has several colour forms and horticulturists have recognized 81 garden varieties, some of which have injudiciously been planted in its natural range. In some varieties the pink of the flower and red borders of leaves are replaced by a creamy yellow. This unusual flower has a long vase life in flower arrangements, and makes for an excellent dried flower.
The specific epithet cynaroides refers to the artichoke-like appearance of the flower-heads: the artichoke belongs to the genus Cynara.
The King Protea is the National Flower of South Africa and as such lends its name to the national Cricket team, whose nickname is the Proteas. In the early 1990s there was a political debate as to how and if the flower should be incorporated onto the national Rugby teams shirts, perhaps replacing the controversial Springbok.

Questo genere riunisce un centinaio di arbusti sempreverdi, originari dell'Africa; producono lunghi fusti eretti, scarsamente ramificati, rigidi e spessi, che possono raggiungere i 100-150 cm negli esemplari adulti; le foglie sono allungate, ovali o lanceolate, di colore verde scuro, cerose. In estate producono alcune infiorescenze larghe 10-25 cm, costituite da molti piccoli fiori riuniti al centro, contornati da lunghe brattee colorate; le infiorescenze di protea hanno le forme piu varie, talune sembrano grandi carciofi, oppure pigne di conifera. I fiori vengono prodotti in numero contenuto da ogni pianta, ma rimangono fioriti per settimane. Le brattee possono essere bianche, rosa, rosse, arancioni. P. neriifolia ha le foglie simili all'oleandro, e presenta una curiosa peluria scura sul margine delle brattee rigide; P. cynaroides produce infiorescenze tondeggianti, simili a grossi carciofi, di colore rosato o bianco. Queste piante non sono molto diffuse nei nostri giardini, ma vengono molto utilizzate per i fiori recisi, anche perche nei paesi di origine i fiori sbocciano quando nella nostra penisola e pieno inverno. Con il passare degli anni gli arbusti tendono a "svuotarsi" nella parte inferiore, e a produrre meno fiori, e quindi consigliabile potare la pianta fino al terreno per favorire lo sviluppo di ramificazioni nuove e piu vigorose.

How to make a Lily of the Valley in Sugar

How to make a Lily of the Valley in Sugar

Not a good photo but was rushing. Just thought I'd show how a Lily of the Valley posy is of the most simple flowers I think...
1. Knead paste til soft & stretchy then roll some tiny balls. Smaller balls make the buds.
2. Roll some paste thinly til you can see through it and cut out flower shape. soften edges with ball tool. Roll large ball of paste for the body, attach to a glued hook 30 gauge wire. Add flower when attached and indent the centre. This attaches both pieces as well as give the flower a natural center look.
3. Hook 33 gauge wires for tiny buds and do as above only without adding the flower top. When dry arrange on a larger wire for support, graduating as you go to a latger bud.
4. Roll out some paste (spruce & leaf green) about 1mm thick. This is quite a fleshly leaf so needs to be thicker than flowers. Leave a central area thicker as to be able to insert a 26 gauge wire. Cut out leaf shape then add a straight unhooked glued wire.
Then vein and soften edges with a metal ball tool (dresden and bone work the same). Add movement and hang to dry.
5. When all dry apply dust. I used lemon and cream for flower center, then pearl white to add a tad of sparkle. Foliage, vine, forest & leaf greens to leaf. Remember to add darker dust down central vein and lighter shades to the outer leaf. Steam flowers over kettle for a second, glaze the leaves. Set aside to dry.
6. When dry assemble......simple :)

A big thank-you to everyone who has left a thank-you comment of appreciation. If I have helped just one person by showing this tutorial, then I am happy for you :) x
