The Secret Life of Flowers: What Does a Sunflower Symbolize

What does a sunflower symbolize? I’ve always hoped that I wasn’t the only one whose mind wandered to the scene in Shrek, where he gives Donkey the ‘ogres are like onions’ analogy in the middle of a sunflower field. Not only an iconic moment in movie history but also the first time I recognized a sunflower as, well, a flower (go easy, I was six). I also remember it being my mom’s favorite flower for many years. Which consequently turned into her obsession with giving my sister and I, you guessed it, sunflower seeds as a snack. 

I still enjoy sunflower seeds in my adult life, but maybe because I’m no longer receiving bowls of it every other day. Harvesting sunflower seeds is actually way easier than I thought, and I’m excited to share the news with anyone who will listen. Of course, before we bear fruit (seeds) from this god-like flower, we should know where it comes from. Read below as I tell you all I’ve learned about sunflowers and how to harvest and roast your own sunflower seeds.

Grandma’s Flower Garden: Flowers Your Grandparents Will Cherish This Grandparent’s Day

In my younger years, I would often spend weeks upon weeks at my grandparent’s house, anticipating homemade donuts, shopping mall outings, and, to my mom’s dismay, gaining in-depth knowledge about my grandfather’s tobacco pipe (for the record, I never smoked it!) To me, my grandparents are the 8th wonder of the world, and just like you would a flower, they nurtured me into the kind, loving, and slightly neurotic, adult I am today. 


To be honest, Grandparents Day does ring a bell, but I’ve never really known much about it, let alone celebrated it. But, considering how much I adore my grandparents, I’m definitely glad I did some digging. If you’ve clicked on this article, I’m sure you feel the same about your golden oldies. Read below as I tell you more about Grandparents Day and how you can celebrate with flowers with the help of Russian Flora.

Switzerland’s National Treasure: The Edelweiss Flower

How do you test whether or not someone experienced a period in their life where they obsessively watched The Sound of Music? Simple. You break into the ‘Edelweiss’ song and see if they join in. Besides being a tune that gets stuck in my head at least once a year (mainly because Christopher Plummer was a dreamy hunk with a great voice), the Edelweiss flower is also the iconic image and national flower of Switzerland.

Thanks to the power of folktales and just enough science, this flower overshadowed many of its mountainous contendents, gaining cult status in the mid-19th century. As it adorns Swiss airlines, coins, and even the Swiss tourism office, it remains an important symbol of Swiss culture. But how did this come to be? Although there is a strong association with the Alps, plot twist, Edelweiss actually originates from the Himalayas and Siberia. Read below to learn how this fluffy flower became Switzerland’s national treasure and when and why you should send Edelweiss to your special someone with Russian Flora
