Sunflower Season!

The end of summer into early fall boasts the most beautiful sunflowers of the season. As we approach that season, here is an inside look at all things sunflower!

Sunflowers are native to the U.S. and due to that, a large portion of the sunflowers we sell here at Main Wholesale Florist at this time of year are from local growers. They vary in size and shape but the stems can be up to a whopping 30”! The flower heads themselves range from about 3”-5”. They are usually all yellow or have the traditional brown center that people love so much. They symbolize adoration, loyalty, and longevity which make them wonderful for a wide array of occasions.

Sunflowers are also hardy which makes them a great selection. They can last up to a week which customers always love. They are also perfect for a summer or autumn wildflower wedding. These make great accompaniments to other seasonal, local favorites such as gomphrena, and celosia. Try pairing them with bright colors such as purple or hot pink!

Sunflowers are celebrated especially around harvest season as they have been for centuries. We love a good sunflower arrangement for fall! Whether you love sunflowers because of their bright, bold color’s or because they symbolize the start of autumn and harvest season, one thing is for sure, you’re not alone in that! Everyone loves sunflowers and with their versatility, it’s not hard to see why.
