If there's one flower that's impossible to miss, it's the sunflower. These beaming beauties are like sunshine on a stem - tall, cheerful, and impossible to ignore! Not only are they eye-catching, but they also have massive, vibrant heads that are impossible not to love. And don't even get me started on the seeds - not only are they tasty, but they're also packed with nutrients. No wonder sunflowers have been a fan favourite for centuries! These native North American plants are loved not just by us humans, but by all sorts of critters too - from bees and butterflies to birds and beyond. Let's talk about the ultimate superstar of the flower world - the sunflower!



Meaning of Sunflowers

Have you ever wondered what the bright and cheerful sunflower symbolises? Well, let us tell you! These stunning blooms are the epitome of loyalty and adoration, thanks to the famous love story of Clytie and Apollo. Plus, their connection to the sun makes them the happiest flower in town, perfect for sending some sunshine to your loved ones on a summer day!


Varieties of Sunflowers

Get ready to add some sunshine to your garden! With over 70 vibrant varieties, sunflowers are a breeze to grow and come in a rainbow of sizes and hues. They're North American natives too!


Types of Sunflowers That Are Commonly Grown in Australia

Sunflowers are the rockstars of the plant world! They're grown all over, even in Australia. With different types like tall giants and cuddly teddy bears, they're loved by gardeners and farmers alike. You can enjoy their happy blooms or munch on their tasty seeds.

  • Russian Sunflower (Helianthus annuus): You'll spot these beauties everywhere, as they're the most popular sunflower variety around. With their colossal yellow blooms that can stretch up to a whopping 30cm in diameter, they'll leave you in awe.
  • Dwarf Sunflower (Helianthus annuus): This little guy may be small in size, reaching only about 60cm in height, but don't let that fool you! Its flowers may be smaller and more compact than other sunflowers, but they pack a punch in beauty and charm. 
  • Giant Sunflower (Helianthus annuus): As its name implies, this awesome plant can reach heights of 3-4 meters, towering over most of us mere humans. And get this - its flower heads can grow up to a whopping 60cm in diameter!
  • Teddy Bear Sunflower (Helianthus annuus): Standing at only 50cm tall, these little cuties have fluffy yellow flowers that will remind you of your favourite childhood stuffed animal.
  • Velvet Queen Sunflower (Helianthus annuus): It flaunts these mesmerizing deep red petals that are complemented by striking black centers. And that's not all - this beauty can grow up to a whopping 1.5 meters tall! 

Along with the classic ones, there are also some stunning ornamental sunflowers that will make your garden look like a work of art. And if you're a fan of snacking, you'll be delighted to hear that there are also sunflowers grown specifically for their delicious, edible seeds. Yum!


Care Tips: Sunflowers can brighten up your day for six to twelve days if you give them some TLC. To make them last longer, pick the ones that are just about to fully bloom. Find stems that are firm and standing tall with cheerful flowers that greet you.
