Turns with the sun

In their bud phase, sunflowers will literally seek out and face the sun. This trait is called heliotropism.

Each sunflower is actually thousands of teeny flowers.

The iconic yellow petals and fuzzy brown centers are actually individual flowers themselves. As many as 2,000 can make up the classic sunflower bloom.
