"Taiyou to Himawari" (太陽と向日葵; Sun and Sunflower) is the fifth single released by Flower. It was released on August 7, 2013 in three editions: Limited CD+DVD, a Regular CD Only edition and a Limited Pressing CD Only edition. Limited CD+DVD edition includes a photo book in a digipak package and the song "what i want...". The Limited Pressing CD Only edition includes only the title track.

This single competes with Happiness' "Sunshine Dream ~Ichido Kiri no Natsu~", with both singles being released on the same day.

The title track was released digitally a week earlier as the group's first digital single. A 2016 version of the song, including only Washio Reina vocals, was released as their tenth digital single in May 25, 2016 and later included as the second b-side of their twelfth single "Yasashisa de Afureru You ni".

This is the last release of Mizuno Erina as member of Flower.
