About Sunflowers

In the language of flowers it is said to represent haughtiness.  We say it has a right too, being one of the tallest flowering plant in the garden, second only to the hollyhocks.  The height of this stunning flower of the sun isn’t its only asset, for every part of the plant is used in some way. 

The seeds for eating and making oil and soap, the leaves and stalks for fodder and cloth making, and in years gone by, a substitute for tobacco.

The sunflower is part of the Helianthus genus and comes from two Greek words, helios for sun & anthos for flower.
