Some cool things to know about Sunflowers
-Sunflowers are heliotropic. That means they follow the sun. If you were to do a time lapse video of a sunflower field during the day you would see theirs heads follow the sun from east to west.
-Sunflower seeds are either black or striped. The black are used to make sunflower oil. The striped are the ones we snack on.
-The average height of a sunflower is 8-12 feet. The Guinness world record winner was 25.5 feet tall!
-The Latin name for sunflower is helianthus. This literally means Sun (helia) Flower (anthus).
