Eight types of colored sunflowers



Sunflowers make me happy!  Do you remember this tablescape using sunflowers I did last year?

 I had no idea there were so many kinds of sunflowers. FTD has the most wonderful blog and talented people that work for them. 

I am happy to share a great article and resource about sunflowers from FTD. Be sure to pin for future reference when you open their guide.


Nothing represents summer quite like the sunflower! They are known for the golden hue of their petals that match the suns beautiful rays. However, despite popular belief, not all sunflowers possess this bright yellow color they are so well known for! To help you better understand the different kinds of colored sunflowers, FTD has created a guide that goes over the eight most popular colored types and their names. From creamy mustard to deep red wine, here is a visual guide to the fifteen of the most beautiful sunflowers and eight of the most popular types of colored sunflowers. 

 After viewing the guide,  tell me if you have planted any of these types of sunflowers in your garden? 

You might also enjoy reviewing a guide from FTD on hydrangeas I shared last year here.
Weren't these great resources?

 
Have a wonderful week.

  2. I love sun flowers. I have planted the bright yellow, the orange looking ones and the ones that had a wine color to it. My sister had some really pretty ones for summer and I am getting ready to plant some for Fall. Last year mine got over 7 1/2 feet tall. I only plant a few rows but it's enough to make me happy. Thanks for sharing the site to go too. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. There's only one problem with sunflowers. I planted some against my white fence to look pretty. What did they do? Turned their lovely heads to follow the sun and looked over the fence toward my neighbor's house. All I could see was the back of their heads!

  4. Wow, that earth flower sunflower is absolutely stunning. I love the melon color! Sunflowers always make me happy with their little faces that follow the sun!

  5. Bonnie, what a great resource you have shared! I love sunflowers and this is my third season to grow them! I had no idea there were so many different colors! The Chianti and Moulin Rouge were both breathtaking! I cant imagine looking out behind my garden and seeing sunflowers in colors other than bright gold! It has been a tough year, the first seeds we planted never came up. Our second planting got hit by the high winds, but they survived and hopefully I will be seeing their sunny faces in a few days! Thanks for sharing, this so interesting!

  6. I had no idea of so many varieties of sunflowers and I am so happy you've shared the link Bonnie. I remember that stunning photo of the tablescape and sunflower field. I enjoy setting a table and using sunflowers on my tables on the veranda. Sunflowers make me smile.

  7. I adore sunflowers but I've never seen the pink ones! Pretty! I love your table setting -- I must have started reading you after you posted this one, because with two of my fave colors, blue and yellow, I'm sure I would have remembered! It's just lovely!

  11. Who knew there were so many varieties of sunflowers?! I love ALL of them. I've never planted a sunflower of any variety, but they are my favorites to receive in bouquets. ;) One of my favorite things about sunflowers is that they turn their heads to follow the sun (reminds me to turn my head to follow the Son). ;) Wishing you a wonderful rest of summer! blessings ~ tanna

  13. I've never seen the pink sunflowers before, but I am completely smitten! I haven't had much success growing sunflowers. They get knocked over by high winds every year - because we have strong storms often, much like in Kansas. Thanks for sharing the sunflower love. :-)
