#CBUstaycation Challenge – Take a picture with a sunflower taller than you

Nothing says summer like the bright yellow petals of a sunflower. And nothing says post me on insta like a gorgeous sunflower that also just happens to be taller than you.

Did you know that sunflowers are one of the fastest growing plants and on average they grow up to 8-12 feet within six months? So, there shouldn’t be any reason you can’t find one taller than you. We dare you to find one!

Pro-tip: There’s a huge sunflower field in Northeast Margaree. You’re welcome.

Sunflower Facts:

Sunflower is the only flower with flower in its name
“Helianthus” is the scientific name of Sunflower – Helia for Sun and Anthus for Flower
The Guinness world record for the tallest sunflower is 25 feet 5 ½ inches, grown by M Heijims in Oirschot, Netherlands in 1986

ROADSQUAD NOTE: We didn’t know these facts either. We totally googled it.
