Sunflowers are unique and special flowers and here we have gathered a bunch of sunflower quotes that express exactly that.

The sunflower head is not one flower, but up to thousands of tiny ones, and one head can produce 1000-2000 seeds. Sunflowers are food plants for many species - and were used to make bread by many Native Americans. Sunflower oil is a great source of iron, calcium, and vitamins A and D.
