Yellow sunflowers are a well known flower and make up the genus Helianthus. This is a greek name, helio meaning sun and anthus meaning flowers, hence its name the sunflower. These flowers have a rich history, holding significant importance to many groups of people including the Greeks, Incas, Chinese, Ukrainians. They are also an extremely important flower because they produce vegetable cooking oil. This flower is primarily grown for this reason. Yellow sunflowers have held importance since many centuries ago, and they are still incredible important flowers today. In 1996 in fact yellow sunflower seeds were scattered in the Ukraine to make a future of a world free of nuclear weapons. A yellow sunflower bouquet can therefore be a symbol of hope.

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.
