Did you know?
Sunflowers are actually dozens of actual flowers, all gathered together in a group. The outside petals are striped as they are made from several flowers 'joining hands' to create a petal around the other flowers.
Every fall, they drop seeds. Birds and squirrels eat them and drop a few seeds as well. We have only planted this particular Green Street garden once, but every year, new plants grow. Even in our dry summer, they were able to survive. Perhaps we have a mystery watering elf?
