With their gorgeous golden heads that turn towards the sun, sunflowers have become emblems of devotion and admiration. Although popularised by the Dutch artist Van Gogh, these heliotropic hedonists of the floral kingdom originate from the Americas, where they were reportedly venerated by Inca tribes who considered them to be images of their sun god.
After an unfortunate mix up with address (I was given the wrong one!) the first delivery of flowers 'Madonna' (and specially chosen chocolates) was kept by the new owner :o( so never reached the chosen recipient. After several emails with your dedicated customer service team, I was delighted your were able to deliver a second bouquet so quickly, and, although sadly the moment of sympathy was lost, the recipient was very happy with the flowers, especially the cheerful sunflowers :o) Thank You x
Service rating : No problems
Product : My friend adored these beautiful sunflowers
Service rating : Speedy delivery and good selection
Product : Slightly disappointed with overall size of bouquet....could had done with a couple of sunflowers to bulk it out. Otherwise, nice selection of flowers. Too early to respond on longevity of flowers
Service rating : A search facility - by type of flowers/price etc would be really useful. I’d like to be able to filter in or out on particular flower types.
Product : My mum loved them! However it didn’t look like the deluxe size had any more sunflowers in it than the standard one - and was filled in with other background filler flowers instead
Service rating : All via web. Flowers orderered and delivered exactly on time at a premium..
Product : Regular bouquet a bit bunched up and then 3 extra sunflowers jammed in there. Now dead.
Very nice colourful sunflowers, lasted well and got me brownie points from my girlfriend!
Service rating : The best service ever
Product : The sunflowers were just like the picture bought for golden wedding anniversary they were perfect.

The botanical name of Sunflowers is Helianthus. The Greek word 'helios' means sun and 'anthos' means flower. Sunflowers originate from North America. The Sunflower was cultivated by North American Indians for many years as a food crop. The nutritional value is still the main reason for growing it in many parts of the world. Only recently have we begun to grow sunflowers delivery for decorative reasons.
Most sunflowers delivered are bright yellow with dark brown centres, but varieties are appearing now which have tan, orange, maroon or striped petals, and green-yellow centres. Some are even without the central disc, but are fully covered in petals instead.
