Sunflowers say "summer" like no other plant. It is Heliotropic, they direct their growth in response to sunlight! Native to North America, sunflowers are heat-tolerant, resistant to pests, and beautiful. You can even harvest them for seed.

An annual plant, sunflowers have big, daisy-like flower faces of bright yellow petals (and occasionally red) and brown centers that ripen into heavy heads filled with seeds.
