Characteristics of sunflowers
Apart from the rose, the sunflower is one of the most well-known flowers. With its long stems and huge yellow flowers, it is unmistakeable. It comes in one colour only, yellow with a black core.
Sunflowers are incredibly clever. They can tell which direction the sun is coming from and will turn their ‘faces’ in that direction. If you are ever in France, driving through the beautiful fields full of sunflowers, have a good look. You will notice that most of them face the same way!
