Great time for Sunflowers basking in the English heatwave, this gorgeous deep red facing the sky but with the leaves starting to wither,
The red sunflower is an unusually colored sunflower created by breeding together different varieties of sunflowers
Sunflowers are symbolic of adoration and loyalty. They turn their heads from East To West following the sun, which is the origin of their common name. Sunflowers belong to the genus helianthus, a reference to Helios, the sun god. In the United States, sunflowers are found in the midwest prairies as well as roadsides. The sunflower generally grows in scrub land and dry areas and are the National flower of Russia
They bloom from July through September
