When Do Sunflowers Bloom?

Timing your trip to the sunflower field requires some patience and spontaneity. Sunflowers can bloom anytime during the summer, but when that peak bloom happens all depends on the weather. Typically, your best chance for picture-perfect scenery is going to be sometime between late July and early September. We recommend following some of the farms on this list on social media so you can be the first to see any big sunflower field announcements.
