Fun Facts About Sunflowers
There are roughly 70 species of sunflowers in the world. Their scientific name, Helianthus, is derived from the Greek terms for “sun” and “flower.” In French, the sunflower is known as the Tournesol, which means Turned Sun. As young sunflowers begin to grow, they track the sun’s movement across the sky--an action called heliotropism. As the flower reaches maturity, the solar tracking slows down. So adult sunflowers normally face east, and young blooms face west. Yellow is the most common color for sunflowers, but there are also orange, red, and even purple varieties.
What we think of as a single sunflower blossom is actually thousands of very small flowers that make up a sunflower head. In 2014, the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed the world’s tallest sunflower in Germany. It measured just over 30 feet in height.
