Sunflowers

Sunflowers make up the genus helianthus which gets its name from Helios which in Greek means Sun, and anthos which means flower, hence the name Sunflower. These flowers always turn towards the sun. They were grown for their usefulness, not their beauty.

 

The Incas had an entire religion devoted to the sunflower. They worshipped the stately flower as a sacred image of their sun god. Incan priestesses wore gold sunflower emblems on their clothing. Incan temples were embellished with sunflower imagery hammered in gold.

Sunflowers are hailed by the Chinese as a symbol of longevity. Universally sunflowers are hailed as the symbol of pride and cheerfulness, 1996 was designated the Year of the Sunflower by the National Garden Bureau. The official state flower of Kansas is Helicanthus annus, a species of sunflower. Kansas is known as the Sunflower State. We feature a variety of sunflower bouquets and sunflower arrangements guaranteed to lighten up any room. Sunflowers make a great floral gift for almost any occasion, and are a popular flower of choice for our customers.
