Sunflower, or Helianthus annus, is also known as Corona Solis, Marigold of Peru, Solo Indianus.
The sunflower is a summer annual, best known for its large daisy-like flowers which can produce several hundred seeds each.
The name is derived from the the Greek words helios (sun) and anthos (flower). One reason for this name is that the flowers are heliotropic; they bend towards the sun.
The sunflower is believed to be native to North America, but the plant grows in many areas today including Europe and Central America.
Color ranges from bright yellow to rich gold.
