You can’t fail but smile to see a field of sunflowers – their faces turning to face the sun as it moves through the sky, and this is reflected when they are in arrangements, whether for happy or sad occasions. These amazing blooms scream harvest time, happiness and sunshine and when you want to make a statement I can’t think of much bolder than a sunflower or two or three or four…Sunflower Facts
Sunflower is the only flower with flower in its name!
“Helianthus” is the scientific name of Sunflower, Helia for Sun and Anthus for Flower.
They follow the movement of the sun across the sky from east to west, and this process is known as heliotropism.
Sunflowers are one of the fastest growing plants and they grow tall. On an average they grow up to 8-12 feet within six months.
A single sunflower can have up to 2000 seeds.
Sunflowers are often included in our Funeral and Wedding arrangements.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P
Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B
My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
