We’re Here To Help


Flower Life

Because we harvest and ship the same day, our flowers are up to 5 days fresher and last longer than flowers purchased at a retail florist. By following our flower care guidelines you can expect 2 to 3 weeks of vase life. When the flowers finally lose their freshness, they may be left in the vase without water to become a stunning dried flower arrangement that lasts years.



Flower Care

Each order includes detailed care instructions and a 3 week supply of flower food to prolong freshness and beauty. For the longest vase life we recommend cutting ½ inch from each stem just prior to placing the arrangement into a solution of 1 packet of flower food (provided) mixed with fresh water. The fresh water solution should be refreshed and the flower stems trimmed an additional ½ inch at 3 to 4 day intervals.



Dried Protea

Protea make a great dried flower arrangement as their leaves do not drop to the ground or shrivel when they die. You can either keep flowers in the same vase, or store them upright to allow them to open in a dark, well-ventilated location. Leave the flowers for 2 to 3 weeks, letting the colors change hue, then rearrange the flowers to create a rewarding display of lasting beauty.




Golden Hawk Protea ships to order. Unless otherwise requested, orders received prior to 7:00 a.m. PST, Sun through Wednesday, are shipped within 24 hours. Example: an order received before 7:00 a.m. on a Tuesday will be harvested and shipped that Tuesday to arrive by Thursday. See Shipping Info page for more information.




The flower arrangement is delivered in a custom box, artfully arranged, with a personalized gift card ready to be placed in a vase of your choice. 




We package our flowers to safely ship using standard shipping services. If your flowers appear dry, follow the included care instructions and they will pep up within 1-2 days. If there are broken or damaged stems in your order, please email us at info@buyproteaflowers.com within 3 days and attach photos to your message.
