Our August Flower of the Month: Sunflowers

Sunflowers are the ultimate summer flowers! They actually follow the path of the sun as they grow, and it is natural to see them twist and turn throughout the day as the sun moves. We actually grow some of the sunflowers from our arrangements right in our garden at the flower shop!

Did you know that there are more than 25 varieties of sunflowers? They come in a range of colors - not always the big yellow ones that we most often see. There are some varieties of sunflowers that grow 8 feet tall, and some that top out at only about 15 inches tall. But they all require water, do best with 6-8 hours of sunshine a day and bring big smiles to anyone who receive them all summer long! 

Tune in throughout August as we share more about sunflowers, including some of our favorite arrangements to send and receive!
