Sunflowers: Avoid the large-headed sunflowers for this bouquet. Instead, choose small-headed sunflowers. Check that the stems of sunflowers you buy at a flower shop or grocery are strong and intact. Sunflowers with weak, softened stems won’t last long.
Roses: To complement the sunflowers, I used a mixture of red and yellow roses. Further down, I will discuss other combinations of sunflower roses.
Hypericum: I used hypericum red as foliage, and also as a substitute for filler flowers. The leaves and ruby berries add movement to the roses and combine them with the sunflowers.
