Ah, sunflower! weary of time Who contest the steps of the sun Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveler's journey is done. - William Blake, Songs of Experience
sun.flow.er \-. flau.(-*)r\ n : any of a genus ( Helianthus) of composite plants with large yellow-rayed flower heads bearing seeds that serve as stock food and yield an edible oil.
The sunflower is not one flower, but a cluster of more then 2000 tiny flowers growing together!
A sunflower's head can grow to be as big as 2 feet across and the plant itself can be as tall as 18 feet.
