    As I was named after the Calla Lily, of course the Calla Lily was my favorite flower for many years, but that was so until I began planting sun flowers. Named sunflower because it looks like the picture of the sun when we draw the sun, its face is huge and round. But it is also called the sunflower because it follows the path of the sun throughout the day.

This phenomenon is known as heliotropism. To veiw entire article click:
