Pin cushion is a type of protea that has been given its name due to the fact that it looks very similar to
a cushion containing a number of inserted pins. In its natural environment, pin cushion grows in very hot and arid areas. As a result, it is an
extremely hardy flower that can maintain its overall appearance for a number of weeks if maintained properly. One will notice that
pin cushion stems are relatively thick and solid. Cutting the stems requires considerable strength.
Pin cushion comes in three colours: red, orange, and yellow. They can be used in flower arrangements and
bouquets to provide an appearance that is different from the ordinary. However, due to their rugged look, pin cushions are not commonly used
in wedding flower arrangements or in floral pieces designed to express love and affection.
Generally, pin cushions are available throughout the year. The red and orange pin cushions tend to be more
available than the yellow pin cushion.
Power Flowers obtain pin cushions at different times of the year. If you need to use them
in flower arrangements for an event, it is best to order them at least two weeks before the event so that they can be imported from the farms.
