The sunflower’s name comes from its tendency to reposition itself to face the sun. Its genus, Helianthus, is rooted in two Greek words — “Helios” meaning sun and “anthos” meaning flower. The ancient Greek myth of Apollo and Clytie is one explanation of why sunflowers turn towards the sun.
The sunflower’s yellow colour symbolizes vitality, intelligence, and happiness. The colour yellow also traditionally symbolizes friendship. Sunflowers also symbolize worship and faithfulness in various religions because of their resemblance to the sun, which is associated with spiritual knowledge and the desire to seek light and truth.
Sunflowers are often given on 3rd year wedding anniversaries as signs of adoration, loyalty, and strength.
Sunflowers typically bloom in the summer, many sunflowers are heat and drought tolerant, making them easy plants to grow.
