In late spring, gorgeous sunflower fields in Houston burst into color and they are such a sight to see! These happy flowers are a beautiful symbol of summer days to come and a visit is sure to brighten any day.
As an added bonus, most farms also release a fresh round of sunflower U-pick fields during late September and October to kick off their fall festivals. Plan to visit in fall if you missed the spring events – or better yet, go to both!
Rows and rows of golden blooms fill acres of beautiful fields for you to explore, use as a photography background, and pick your own sunflowers near Houston too! We love visiting flower fields each season and hope you enjoy them too!
Mark your calendars, or better yet sign up the farms’ newsletters below so that you don’t miss a bloom update. Check out our personal favorite Houston sunflower farms below.
