The Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, Morocco took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years to create. Behind high earthen walls, shady walks meander though exotic plants, palm trees and cacti, and burbling streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers. The air is laden with sugared fragrance and songbirds’ chirping fill the air. Vibrant blue throughout, inspired by the Atlas Mountains.

Protea is both the botanical name and the English common name of a genus of South African flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes (AfrikaansThe genus Protea was named in 1735 by Carl Linnaeus after the Greek god Proteus, who could change his form at will, because have such a wide variety of forms.The Proteaceae family to which proteas belong is an ancient one. Its ancestors grew in Gondwana, 300 million years ago. Proteaceae is divided into two subfamilies: the Proteoideae, best represented in southern Africa, and theGrevilleoideae, concentrated in Australia and South America and the other smaller segments of Gondwana that are now part of eastern Asia. Africa shares only one genus with Madagascar, whereas South America and Australia share many common genera — this indicates they separated from Africa before they separated from each other. Most protea occur south of the Limpopo River. However, Protea kilimanjaro is found in the chaparral zone of Mount Kenya National Park. 92% of the species occur only in the Cape Floristic Region, a narrow belt of mountainous coastal land.
