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.
Service rating : Excellent communication throughout the process
Product : Although the flowers arrived on time, I got to see them the following day and was disappointed by the quality. Th e sunflowers were wilting and obviously past their best.
I cant recommend this arrangement. Photos available if interested
Service rating : No problems
Product : My friend adored these beautiful sunflowers
Service rating : Kept me informed
Product : But sunflowers only lasted two days whic was disappointing
Service rating : Service was good; Serenata Flowers kept me informed of when my order would be delivered.
Product : I ordered the sunflower arrangement for a friend as sunflowers are her favourite flower. The arrangement, which was absolutely stunning, was left with a next door neighbour. When my friend collected the arrangement, the glass fishbowl was of such poor quality that it broke into pieces as it was handed over to her. I found out some time later, by chance, what had happened. I was very disappointed at hearing this, but glad that my friend was not injured by the broken glass. This is the first time I have used Serenata Flowers; sadly, I won’t be using them again.
Lovely. Elegant shape, large glass vase which did the job nicely and will be really good for bunches in the future. Think it might suit sunflowers particularly well
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.
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
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.
