The Sunflower - Flower of the Sun 2019-06-24

In 2009, with the game “Plants vs. Zombies” gaining wide popularity, people’s enthusiasm towards the sunflower was higher than ever. Its swaying golden flower head has captured numerous people’s heart.

Since ancient times, for its flower head always tracking the sun in the sky, the sunflower has been perceived as the spokesman of relentless pursuit in many cultures. It has been taken as the national flower by many countries like Ukraine, Russia, and Peru. In China, it was chosen to be the flower to praise teachers’ constant efforts. Above all, it has been the subject of the most famous work of Van Gogh “Sunflowers”.

The sunflower’s unparalleled beauty and its bright color make it the favorite of many newly-weds. In the field of the sunflower, you can see many couples shooting their wedding photos either in their red traditional wedding dresses or in their white western wedding dresses. Either way, it’s pleasant to the eye. The sunflower commonly blooms during summer and a portion of fall, and lasts for two to three weeks. If you want to see this marvelous flower, you’d better hurry.
