Sunflowers (helianthus annuus) are greatly loved by bees and birds! They can grow to a variety of heights, maybe 6 or 7 feet or more! Whilst flowering, the bees will be regular visitors. Sunflowers will also turn to face the sun for maximum exposure. They symbolise adoration and loyalty – so are absolutely perfect for a wedding! Their botanical name derives from the Greek helios, meaning sun and anthos, meaning flower. Annuus means annual, a plant that sets seed, flowers and dies in one year.
