The California Protea Association (CPA) is a membership-based organization that works to improve and develop cultivars and promotes the marketing of Protea. It was formed to assist its members to learn more about how to successfully make Protea flowers a more important part of California floriculture.

The California Protea Association is not a retailer or shipper of Protea, but works to assist those who cultivate, sell and purchase California Protea flowers.
