Sunflowers are an annual plant 

grown for beauty and harvested for seed. 

Sunflowers have big, daisy-like flower faces of bright yellow petals

and brown centers that ripen into heavy heads filled with seeds.
The Sunflower is a good bee plant, as it furnishes hive bees with large quantities of wax and nectar. Sunflower honey is delicious.Traditionally, several Native American groups planted sunflowers on the north edges of their gardens as a "fourth sister" to the better known three sisters combination of  corn, beans, and squash.
