COMMON NAME Standardized: sunflower petals
BOTANICAL NAME Helianthus annuus Plant Family: Asteraceae
The sunflower petals 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. In Greek mythology, the sunflower came to be because of a water nymph who was in love with the sun god Apollo. When he did not return her affections, she watched him from dawn to dusk, and soon her hair transformed into golden petals; her face, into the center of the flower, and her body, into the stem. The sunflower is believed to be native to North America, but the plant grows in many areas today including Europe and Central America. The seeds are the most commonly used part of the plant and are usually collected in the fall.
