Fresh flowers have a way of brightening everyone’s day, don’t they? We would be hard-pressed to think of anyone who does not love flowers! When we have a fresh vase of freshly cut flowers in our home, they have a way of bringing all sorts of happiness into any room where they are placed.
If we had to choose a favorite flower, we would need to think about it for a bit. Okay, thinking time is over! We are ready to name our #1 flower and it’s the sunflower. There’s just something about them, you know? The dark center and the bright yellow petals create an amazing juxtaposition. If you can look at a sunflower and not be happier, we do not know what to tell you. But there’s actually another sunflower that’s not yellow at all. However, it’s so beautiful it still brings a smile to our faces.
Though not commonly known, the chocolate cherry sunflower is as real as it gets. It’s rich and decadent in color, just like the name suggests. It might sound like something out of a fairy tale but we have the pictures to prove its existence. The gorgeous burgundy petals get darker and darker as they make their way to the flower’s center. It creates the most amazing visual experience for flower lovers everywhere.
The most incredible part of all? These flowers can grow to truly astonishing heights if they are not pinched off. They can stand up to eight feet tall, with an eight-inch flower. If the flower is pinched, it obviously won’t reach the same heights, but that does not make them any less beautiful.
For those who are looking for plants that are low maintenance, you won’t be able to find anything easier to take care of than these. All you need to do is water them once a week and that’s it.
If you’d like to purchase some chocolate sunflower seeds for yourself, you can find them on Etsy in the SEEDVILLEUSA store. You can get 25 seeds for $3.00. Each packet comes with instructions on planting and care, as well.
We don’t know about you, but this is the perfect flower for a fall bouquet. It’s time to order up some seeds now so that we can be fully prepared!SKM: below-content placeholder
