Sunflowers, which can now be found in many countries, are native to North America. Ironically though, Argentina and Russia have the most sunflowers. They are wonderful flowers not just for their natural beauty, but also for their ability to turn toward the sun. This optimizes their ability to photosynthesize. This is how sunflowers got their name--from the Greek helios "sun" and anthos "flower." A single sunflower head can produce up to 1000 seeds. As the sunflower matures, it stops tracking the sun and stays facing the east.
