The Secret of the Sunflower

Many people think the sunflower is one big flower, but it is actually a collection of many small individual flowers that grow closely to each other in a pattern and also blossom apart at different rate. The flowers at the edge have already blossomed, while the flowers in the center still have not opened. See photo.
