Meet Helianthus Annuus, the Sunflower
In the summer months sunflowers are abundant in California and other parts of the United States. California is the largest grower of fresh cut flowers in the country. Our flower shop is so lucky to be located in California. In the summer when sunflowers are at their seasonal peak, we have so many varieties of sunflowers available to our clients. We have sunflowers with the traditional or common “black eyes” or centers. They can come with green centers, bronze petals, burgundy petals, bi-color yellow and bronze petals like the picture on the left. We also have “Teddy Bear” sunflowers–are fun with lots of little golden yellow petals. Our shop does carry the traditional sunflower with the black centers throughout most of the year.
Our shop, Edelweiss Flower Boutique, uses sunflowers in numerous floral designs. Most feel sunflowers cannot be elegant, but as you can see elegance is not a problem. The floral arrangement below can be used for a wedding, or as an accent decor for garden party or event.
