Clytie was a water nymph, in love for Apollo, which didn’t correspond for her love, and that’s made her languish. She used to stay all day long, set on the cold floor and her braids unleashed on her shoulders. For nine days she remained, without eating or drinking, feeding only with her own tears and with the icy dew. She contemplated the sun, from the time it rose up in the spring to hide in the sunset, after its daily course; She saw nothing else, her face was constantly turning to the sun. After all, it is said, her feet rooted to the ground and her face turned into a flower, which constantly moves on its stem, so that it is always facing the sun in its daily course, thus conserving the feeling of the nymph that gave origin to the flower.
