"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do." - Helen Keller
Isn't Sunflower a fascinating and amazing work of nature? It is not only its heliotropism (tendency to face toward the sun) phenomenon that makes Sunflower such an amazing plant, but it is also the multiple purpose and usage we can develop from it. From the sight of Sunflower brightening your day up especially when it is in full bloom with all its colourful glory to as a consumer using sunflower in our oil, snacks and even for our pets in the form of birdseeds. Sunflowers truly deserve to be known as the "happy" flowers making them the perfect gift to bring joy to someone.
