The best time in a day to view the sunflower is in the morning. During the period, the sunflower tilts its flower head facing the sun, very interesting. Most people thought the sunflower can turn its flower head at an angle of 360 degrees, which of course, is not true. Actually, the sunflower can only turn its flower head at an angle of 90 degrees. That means, it stops following the trail of the sun at noon.
