A Brief History of the Sunflower

sunflower arrangementWhen driving up upon a sunflower field, one can not help but be amazed at the site of the beautiful yellow cloud of flowers with brown heads blooming in the center, all pointing directly at the sun. The wild sunflower is native to North America but commercialization of the flower started in Russia and brought the flower to other areas of the globe. It is one of the most popular flowers across the globe.

The Native Americans are credited as being the first to grow, harvest and utilize the sunflower. They saw the flower as a multi-functional and versatile plant. To them, the sunflower yielded oil that they could use for cooking, moisturizing, cleaning and more. They saw seeds they could eat to sustain themselves. They even used the petals and other parts of the flower to paint and make other forms of art.

The sunflower is a beautiful and breathtaking flower rich in history. Giving someone a sunflower is an easy way to brighten up their day and show them just how special they are to you. Central Square Florist is the go-to Boston flower delivery service for those in the Massachusetts area, and has a wide selection of sunflower arrangements to choose from!
