Sunflowers were named for their habit of turning their faces to the sun. At the beginning of the development they exhibit heliotropism, or following the sun in its course from east to west, though the mature blossoms usually end up facing straight east. These are said to be the happiest of flowers, and in the language of flowers they symbolize loyalty and constancy. This particular sunflower’s name honors German Prince Alexander Maximilian of Wied-Nuewied, a noted explorer and naturalist whose journeys took him to the western regions of America in the 1830s.
