Sunflowers, in all their colorful glory, are a happy sight to behold, but there’s more to their nature than just beauty. The multipurpose plants deliver healthy snacks, useful oil, and birdseeds. Each one is actually thousands of teeny flowers. The iconic yellow petals and fuzzy brown centers are actually individual flowers themselves. As many as 2,000 can make up the classic sunflower bloom.
Sunflowers track the sun, this is called heliotropism. The flower buds and young blossoms will face east in the morning and follow the sun as the earth moves during the day. However, as the flowers get heavier during seed production, the stems will stiffen and the mature flower heads will generally remain facing east.
They’re native to the Americas.
Like potatoes, tomatoes, and corn, the cheerful plants didn’t originate in Europe. They were cultivated in North America as far back as 3000 BCE when they were developed for food, medicine, dye, and oil. Then, they were exported to the rest of the world by Spanish conquistadors around 1500.
