Meaning and Significance
Leucospermums, also known as pincushion flowers, are native to South Africa and are prized for their unique appearance. The flower's name is derived from the Greek words "leucos" and "sperma," which mean "white seed," due to the appearance of the seeds at the center of the flower. In traditional African medicine, Leucospermums were used to treat respiratory ailments, and they were also believed to have aphrodisiac properties. In modern times, Leucospermums have become popular in weddings due to their striking appearance.
