The Sunflower: One of Fall's Best Flowers October 04, 2016 06:05


When September comes, we all are aware that fall is upon us.  During this season there are some wonderful flowers that become so fitting and precious to us.  One of those favorite flowers during the fall is on other than the sunflower.  There's no flower like the sunflower.  It is one of the most well-known flower in the world for its' simplicity of beauty, appearance, grace, its' seeds, and much more.

Sunflowers make up the genus Helianthus, and in the Greek, helios means sun and anthos means flower.  The genus of sunflowers, which contains about 67 species, is thought to be native to the Americas originally, and were domesticated around 1000 B.C.  As the popularity of Sunflowers has grown, it has come to be loved and distributed worldwide. 

It is composed of yellow ray flowers and a central disk, which causes it to appear similar to the sun.  As a result, just like when we feel the rays of the sun and feel happy, so the emotional ties that we have come to embrace with sunflowers.  The outer flowers on the Sunflower are the ray florets and can be yellow, maroon, orange, or other colors. The central disk is composed of either yellow, brown, or purple flowers, depending on the species, and the flower is actually a head (formerly composite flower) of numerous flowers crowded together.  Sunflowers are sterile as well.

Unlike other flowers, sunflower plants are cultivated for their seeds and oil. It is said that refined sunflower-seed oil is edible. Sunflowers have 39 to 49% oil in the seed, which accounts for roughly 14% of the world's production of seed oils and about 7% of the oil cake and meal produced from oil seeds. It is also said that sunflower oil is considered a premium oil because of its light color, high level of unsaturated fatty acids and lack of linolenic acid, bland flavor and high smoke points. It is the most commonly used oil.

Sunflowers are also used to create stunning floral arrangements during the fall season.  SoCal Petals is a Los Angeles Florist is a nationally-recognized FTD Master Florist and a recipient of an Expertise 2016 Best Florists in Los Angeles Award.  We take pride in what we do, making sure we provide our customers with the superior floral arrangements that you deserve.  Throughout the Los Angeles and Southern California, you can turn to SoCal Petals to perform all of your floral and assorted gift needs.
