“We’re all golden sunflowers inside.” – Allen Ginsberg
Sunflowers are one of the most popular flower all around the world! These bright and beautiful flowers bring a ray of sunshine to anyone who receives them.
Sunflowers are originally from North America, with them being one of the first crops grown there. They were used as a food source, most commonly by grinding their seeds into a flour that could be used to make bread. In addition, they were also used to create a purple dye, and for medical remedies.
- The name comes from the fact that it constantly repositions its face to the sun. Its genus, Helianthus, literally translates from Greek to “sun flower.”
- They are the national flower of Russia and the state flower of Kansas.
- The head of the sunflower actually consists of 1,000 or more tiny, individual flowers joined together.
Yellow is the most common colour for sunflowers, they are also available in shades of orange and red. These colours are a sign of strength and positivity. Typical yellow sunflowers are a symbol of adoration & loyalty, as well as long life and good fortune. However, pairing them with other flower colours can change their meaning.
When paired with cream or white- Innocence
When paired with brown or burgundy- Loyalty and support
