We have our field broken up into 3 sections
First, we have the “Big Field of Yellow” this is planted full of the classic yellow sunflowers that will mature to about 5-6 feet tall.
Then we have our “Field of Beauty” These are our ornamental Sunflowers. In this field you will find many different types of sunflowers. In total you will find 25 different sunflowers from white to red. Some have many different colors in them. We small sunflowers that will fit in your hand to large that are bigger then your head. Our favorite is the Cooper Queen, it is a large sunflower that has the most beautiful face and it will still fit in a vase with other sunflowers.
In our last section you will find our field of Giants. In this field you will find sunflowers that are much taller. These Sunflowers grow between 9-12 feet tall. This is where we keep our biggest sunflowers. Some of them you can even eat their seeds.
