Edit Florist & Wholesaler Information

Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • Sunflowers are shipped tight to avoid shipping damage.Even very tight cut sunflowers open surprisingly well in 2 to 3 days.
  • The main commercial sunflower varieties on the market are Sunbright (black center) , Sunrich (yellow center) and Sunbeam ( green center)
  • Sunflowers tint well and tinted red have become widely available and popular on a year round basis.
  • Interesting bi-color ( 2-tone) varities are usually produced for the fall season. The most popular of these include Firewalker, Ring of Fire and Mahogany.
  • Good quality sunflowers have clean or no foliage.
  • Most Sunflowers used in the professional cut flower industry are pollenless F1 Hybrid varieties.
  • Care and Handling:
  • Sunflowers should be hydrated with floral preservative and water should be changed regularly as Sunflowers tend to cloud the water rapidly which can cause stem clogging.

Grading Information

  • Graded by diameter of center or disc with ranging between 3 and 5 cm Mini and Small grades , 6 to 7 cm Large grades to 9 and 12 cm Extra Large grades.
  • Once fully open, blooms will be approx twice the size as the center disc.
  • Bunched by 5 or 10 stems.
  • Minimum stem length 60cm.
  • Sunflower foliage can be prone to damage, poor foliage should be stripped.

Grower and Breeder Information

  • Many new interesting F1 hybrid pollenless varieties are being bred for commercial cut flower production.
  • Should be shipped in "cup" stage with blooms showing colour but not open or blooms will be damaged in transit.
  • Individually netting blooms is the common way to ship Sunflowers over long distances to avoid damage.
