From the same general family as the Silver Oak tree, proteas are giant, solid, almost unnaturally beautiful flowers that originated in South Africa. Today, their unique appearance and robust character have made protea a popular gift flower. There are various Protea Farms on UpCountry Maui, like Maui’s Upcountry Protea Farm and Sunrise Protea Farm. By the way, I have one more Protea photo here, which I posted a while ago.
I took these photos back in December and wanted to share these for my Weekly Winners but didn’t get a chance then. Â So I am doing it now – I hope that ok with Lotus. Â For more Weekly Winner Photos, visit Sarcastic Mom Blog and click the links.
Those flowers are amazing. Very unique.

WOW — beautiful and unique. They remind me a little bit of a Sunflower… only much prettier.

So beautiful! Is there anything in Maui that is not? 🙂
Thanks for the compliments on my new design – it truly does take work to make those changes. At least it’s exciting and fun.
Wow! So gorgeous!

What beautiful flowers! Just another reason why I would love to visit Maui! Especially now in the frigid cold of winter :-)!
