A Note on the Flower:
Blushing Bride is flower native to South Africa.
The plant's common name suggest it was a favorite bridal bouquet. Unconfirmed accounts suggest a more entertaining origin.
Folklore tells how a young man would court a maiden, presenting her with a flower. The deeper the color, the more imminent the proposal, causing the maiden to blush.
Another story claims it was customary for a young man to wear the flower in his lapel when he was about to propose.
The name Blushing Bride derives from the fact that the suitor's intention was apparent to all who met him, and again the result would be a blushing maiden or bride to be.
