Spiritual Meaning Of Sunflowers

🌻 It's sunflower season! 🌻

Did you know that there are more than 70 different species of sunflowers? And that they typically bloom from July through late August (sometimes into September)? Sunflowers belong to the daisy family and their original name is "Helianthus." This is Greek and Latin and stands for "sun and flower" and also "annual sun." The original French and Spanish meanings also include "turning with the sun" when describing this plant. The spiritual meaning behind this flower is being authentic and embracing our individuality. It also reminds us that we can thrive in more environments than we perhaps originally thought. 🌻
