Is it possible to replant sunflowers after being cut?

My boyfriend bought me some beautiful sunflowers today that had been dyed red...and i decided that i want to keep them for as long as i can. though i know the color won't stay.

i would like to plant them in the ground, but i was wondering if that is even possible since there are no roots.
