Flower of the month
This month’s flower of the month is the sunflower, or helianthus, native to the Americas. There are around 70 varieties of the sunflower. They were brought to Russia by royalty and have stood the test of time for popularity. Known for their height, the tallest sunflower is said to have reached 30 ft 1 ins. But on average they grow between 8 and 10 feet. Oil from the sunflower is rich in minerals like calcium and iron and they are also rich in vitamin A and D. Sunflowers should also be harvested in the afternoon to avoid wilting.
