Parts Of  A Sunflower 

Sunflowers are iconic annuals often grown near the vegetable patch. 

Though they appear to be simple, these gorgeous flowers have a complex structure. 

It may come as a surprise that sunflowers are not one flower, but a plant made up of hundreds of small flowers.

The stem contains chambers that transport minerals, sugar and water from the soil into the plant.

The leaves of the sunflower plant have an essential job: providing photosynthesis!
