Sunflowers are stunning flowers that always bloom toward the sun and have many positive connotations. Sunflowers are an annual flowering plant. The blossoms appear in a variety of colors (yellow, red, orange, maroon, and brown), but the most frequent hue is bright yellow with a brown core that matures into a big head full of seeds. Sunflowers are heliotropic, which means that their blossoms turn to follow the sun’s passage across the sky from east to west, and then turn back to face the east at night to prepare for the morning sun. As a result, many people choose to cultivate this flower to add beauty to their surroundings.
