When we look at a sunflower we make a mental connection to the sunflower paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. The sunflower images captivate the mind and leave you astounded in their simplistic beauty.
A few interesting facts about sunflowers:
- Sunflower heads consists of 1,000-2,000 individual flowers joined together
- The large petals around the edge of a sunflower head are individual ray flowers which do not develop into seeds
- Sunflower always turns to face the sun
- Sunflower seeds have lots of calcium and 11 other important minerals
- Sunflowers were cultivated by Native Americans well over 1000 years ago
- There are about 70 species of sunflowers
