The sunflower is very beautiful -a dense greenish-yellow center, which then becomes black from the mass of ripe seeds and a corolla of large, bright yellow, very large petals that surround the middle of the plant. And all this beauty is on a strong, tall stem. This beautiful sunflower is called the sun on the leg. Did you know that one sunflower consists of thousands of flowers?
