History of the White Sunflower

The white sunflower is a cultivar of the common sunflower (Helianthus annuus) and is believed to have originated in North America over 2,000 years ago. The indigenous people of the Americas, including the Navajo, Hopi, and Pueblo, grew sunflowers for food and medicinal purposes, and they also used the plant in religious and cultural rituals. The first recorded cultivation of the white sunflower is not well documented, but it is thought to have emerged as a naturally occurring variation of the common sunflower.

Botany of the White Sunflower

Like the common sunflower, the white sunflower is an annual plant that can grow up to 12 feet tall, with a single stem that supports a large flower head. The flower head, also known as the inflorescence, can be up to 12 inches across and is composed of many smaller flowers, or florets, arranged in a spiral pattern. The florets of the white sunflower are white, rather than the typical yellow, and they are surrounded by a yellow or green ring of disk florets.

The leaves of the white sunflower are large, oval, and green, and they are arranged alternately along the stem. The plant produces many seeds, which are encased in a tough outer shell and are rich in oil and protein. Sunflowers are pollinated by a variety of insects, including bees and butterflies, and they can be grown in a range of soils and climates, making them a versatile and low-maintenance crop.
