Something About Susara

Susara a "petite queen", is a combination of P. magnifica and P. susannae, and she is certainly one of our favorite fall proteas! Her divine cream and salmon-pink flowers with grey-green leaves appear through autumn, and put on a magnificent display with an abundance of stunning long stem blooms.

It seems Susara is popping up everywhere these days … like this lovely bridal bouquet mixed with yes, susara, pink ice and a splash of genista - quite a festive combination!

And, here we came across another elegant bouquet mixed with brunia albifora, roses and tuberous - with definitely an exotic cape flora feel, no?

Susara even looks great here in this simple wooden crate mixed with waxflower and tagged with a sweet heart!

Susara, is quickly becoming the perfect bloom for all those special occasions!

Protea Power

Visa has taken inspiration from the unique and exotic flora of South Africa after refreshing the design of Table Mountain's two cable cars - How cool is this - Cable Cars Powered by Protea!

These cable cars were re-designed to reflect the World Heritage Site's abundance of flora and fauna that this world famous mountain is home to, and has been recently named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.


Table Mountain is home to the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom with over 1,470 floral species. As the King Protea has become one of most recognized flowers in the protea family, the flagship species of the Cape Floral Kingdom and South Africa's national flower, the design scheme carefully intertwined the King Protea with surrounding flora and fauna.

These cable cars have a wonderful new look - one that celebrates the natural beauty of Table Mountain and the fabulous family of Protea!
