Sunflower in North Dakota

Let the amazing sunflower put a smile on your face

At the peak of the growing season, generally August in North Dakota, vast sunflower fields blanket North Dakota and lift our spirits. Brilliant fields of yellow flowers welcoming the morning sun can be found throughout North Dakota. A Sunflower Shindig will be held September 10-18th where you can take pictures and pick the sunflowers for your own décor at Nelson's Pumpkin Patch, 2448 20th Ave NE in Emerado, ND.

  • Look for the ND Be Legendary mailboxes, they contain sunflower seeds that are free for the taking.
  • Those viewing the colorful crops in North Dakota are reminded not to enter any field without the landowner's permission.
  • Also please note that sunflowers may need to be sprayed to control insects or weeds. Often this spraying is done by aerial application. Be alert and avoid fields that are being sprayed.

Check back here weekly for updated maps to the brightest fields.
