Common Sunflower

The common sunflower is of the genus Helianthus and species annuus. The common sunflower is about 3 meters tall, with a hairy stem, large leaves. It has a large head with bright yellow ray flowers (like petals) and black seeds. Common ancestors include asterales, also common to the maximilian sunflower and the stiff sunflower. It is a eukaryote, and more specifically a flowering plant.

All organisms in our project have flowers that are differently coloured from the green trees and leaves. This adaptation attracts pollinators such as bees and other insects, which increases the variability of genes when pollen spreads.

A unique adaptation of the common sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is its extremely tall height (average of 3m), which allows it to get increased sunlight for energy to use in photosynthesis. The sunflower also has a unique arrangement of individual ray flowers growing around the plant head, at specific angles allowing for the maximum amount of seeds in the center.

Marigolds

The picture of the marigold I posted is called miniature marigold. It falls under the genus tagetes minima. Their height can range from 0.1 to 2.2 meters. These blooms are a vibrant golden-yellow colour. The floral heads tend to range from 4 to 6cm in diameter with a combination of ray and disc florets. The roots are fibrous and they are planted as annuals. To maximize the growth of these flowers, they need soil with good drainage. Some of the species have a range of scents from musky, pungent, to scentless. Their scent is an important trait that can ward off nematodes and insect pests.

In this project, there are several different types of marigolds. The most notable one is the Aztec/Mexican marigold. These marigolds are native to Mexico, hence the name. This flower is part of the genus tagetes erecta. Some of the things that both of these marigolds have in common are their fibrous roots and pungent scents. One unique adaption of marigolds is that they can modify their root length than under drought stress conditions.

Feedback

Hello everyone,
This is a great start. Very cool pictures, focusing on flowers will help a lot on identification and you can focus on flower adaptations which are a really cool topic. Looking forward to see more observations!
Daniel
