Sunflower facts:

Sunflowers symbolize unwavering faith and unconditional love.

Sunflowers (Helianthus annuus) are perhaps one of the easiest flowers that you can grow in the garden.

Sunflowers are called sunflowers for a reason. They need sun.

Sunflowers originate in the Americas. They were first domesticated in what is now Mexico and the Southern United States. Domestic sunflower seeds have been found in Mexico, dating to 2100 BCE. 

Native American people grew sunflowers as a crop from

Mexico to Southern Canada.

Armadilla Wax Works' Sunflower floating candle original design was created over 20 years ago. We must have made thousands of the candles and we love to ship to customers designing centerpiece settings for special events like weddings. The great thing about sunflowers is that they are wonderful to use, and give as gifts, any time of the year.

We make the candles, you make them beautiful with your table settings and personal touches. Choose a container, add room temperature water and gently lower the candles, light and enjoy!
