we only use Hawaiian grown flowers for our assortments and leis
Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Alii Tropical Hawaiian Flowers is pleased to announce new protea baskets and wreaths as part of its line of fresh Hawaiian flower assortments, wedding flowers, leis and other gifts. The wreaths are created from fresh Maui protea and are woven onto a grapevine backing at the farm where they are grown. Wreaths remain fresh for 7 to 10 days after arrival and can be dried thereafter. Wreaths can be used as both a hanging display and as centerpieces.
Protea baskets are made by arranging fresh cut flowers in a container for display. Containers are made from coconut husks, leaves or other materials. Protea become excellent dried flowers and the containers are reusable.
"Unlike most floral companies we only use Hawaiian grown flowers for our assortments and leis. So we are delighted to partner with a small, family farm on Maui that creates such beautiful arrangements," said Frank MacMillan, owner of Alii Flowers.
Protea flowers grow profusely on the mountain slopes of upcountry Maui. Originating in Africa, protea adapted well to the climate of the island and are widely cultivated there. Varieties include king, mink and pincushion protea as well as banksia.
