No other plant can turn to the sun as beautifully as the sunflower, which needs six to eight hours of sun a day to grow. The sight of a yellow field of sunflowers in bloom is soul-lifting, even if the mythological story of the sunflower’s origin and name is a sad one. The young Clytia, a water nymph, was in love with Apollo, the sun god, and kept turning to him to see her, but Apollo did not notice her. When Clytia realized that her love was hopeless, she did not eat or drink for nine days, just gazed at the sun in sorrow. She took pity on the gods, and they turned her into a sunflower, which to this day follows her beloved with its gaze. Like the sun from which they are named, sunflowers represent warmth and light, and are a symbol of loyalty and creativity. Sunflowers have been and continue to be a source of inspiration for many painters. Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers are particularly magnificent and eternal.
