Primary Significance: Pride, Adoration and Sunshine
Their scientific name Helianthus comes from two words, Helios meaning sun, and Anthos, meaning flower.
The sunflower not only resembles the sun, they will also turn to face the sun as the day progress which is how it got its name.
Sunflowers have appeared as revered symbols throughout the ages. It has been found that in Peru, the Aztecs worshipped sunflowers. They did so by placing sunflower images made of gold in their temples and crowning princesses in the bright yellow flowers.
No other flower can lift spirits quite like sunflowers do. Bright and cheery, bold yet comfortable, the sunflower is a warm and caring gift. With brilliant yellow petals that radiates like the bright yellow rays of sunshine, sunflowers have an unmistakable sun-like appearance that has made them an ideal choice for sending sentiments of cheerfulness and sunny thoughts.
With their gorgeous golden heads that turn towards the sun, sunflowers have become emblems of devotion and admiration. In addition, the sunflower is often associated with adoration and longevity.
