Big, bright, and cheery – who can resist a handful of sunflowers? On a grey, cloudy day, perhaps nothing stands out more than a wide, open field full of these yellow blooming blossoms. They can be a sight to behold, especially as their heads follow the sun.
But they weren’t always the symbol of joy and friendship, which they are today.
Why We Love Sunflowers
They’re not just yellow. These large, amazing blooms also come in a variety of colors. Why not try planting red, orange, or purple sunflowers? They’re pretty and are definitely impressive once in full bloom. If you’re feeling adventurous, white sunflowers is a rare breed that will look stunning on any garden.
Sunflowers have different symbolisms across cultures. In popular culture, giving sunflowers is a sign of adoration. In North America, they represent a good bounty and provision. On the other side of the world in China, they symbolize longevity as well as good fortune.
Sunflowers are practical, too! Long before these buds were grown for their beauty, they have been used by our ancestors for food, oil, pigment, and as raw material for making paper. Their seeds have lots of calcium, making them perfect for a midday healthy snack.
Depending on the type of sunflower you decide to plant, they’re generally easy to take care of. Just make sure to water them, especially before and after they sprout flowers.
Giving them slow-release fertilizer is a good idea. Just avoid too much nitrogen so you don’t get an abundance of leaves instead of beautiful blooms.
Stunning Sunflower Invitations
Whether it’s a Save-the-Date or an anniversary party, a tiny sunflower can make a huge difference. They’re also elegant, friendly, and aesthetic. That’s why it’s a popular motif with invitation designs. Their pretty yellow hue is a definite crowd pleaser as well.
