Flowers and fruits - Sunflower


This 1.0 zl stamp, one more in a series showing flowers and fruits, portrays a sunflower (Slonecznik) or Helianthus.  This flower is an annual plant growing to a height of 20-154 inches, within a genus of plants comprising about 70 species in the family Asteraceae.  The plants bear one or more wide terminal capitula (flower heads) with bright yellow-ray florets.  During growth, sunflowers tilt toward the sun during the day (heliotropism), but by maturity generally face east.
