We are getting married 9/8/12. We are having a fall themed wedding and with 5 weeks to go I can not find red or orange sunflowers anywhere! I have tried all the local hobby stores and have looked endlessly on the web with no luck. I thought it would be easier to find them with the stores starting to put all of their fall/harvest themed items out, however the few sunflowers I have come across are either all yellow or if they are red/orange they are as big as my head haha I would like them for my bouquets so I need them a little smaller than that. If anyone knows where I may be able to find them please let me know.

That’s my wedding day and my flower! I planted mine and fingers crossed that they don’t bloom before. I printed a picture of the Autumn Beauty sunflowers, the florist said that they wouldn’t have a problem finding them. How ever, I’ve not been able to find any fake or silk ones either.
Good luck and Congrats to you!

That’s also my day and flower!
Nervous because I’m doing the flowers myself and going to a wholesaler to get them on the Thursday before. I have no idea what they will have but pretty sure I’ll find sunflowers and I am flexible with the accents, I’d like blues and yellows.
Would love to have grown them but have no garden.
Do you bees know how best to handle them? I think I read that sunflowers don’t like flower food.
