Here is a list of sunflower fields in Texas for summer and fall visits.
The Lone Star State has over 15 Sunflower Fields in Texas to visit. Did you know that Texas sunflowers have only 1 season for growing? Sunflowers grow tall bright yellow flowers making a landscape appealing to the eye in the summer and fall. Numerous sunflowers commonly bloom during summer, which is the peak season for the flower; however, late-blooming sunflowers grow from September to October. But it’s still just one growing season. Sunflowers are perennials (meaning they come back each year) that bloom for 8-12 weeks.
If you’re looking to grow your own sunflowers, it’s best to plant the seeds in late spring after the last signs of frost, and you’ll have beautiful sunflowers in mid-summer (early June) through the first frost.
Sunflower Fields In Texas
Visiting sunflower fields is something the whole family will enjoy. Whether in the summer or fall months, there are usually extra activities at the farms that visitors can partake in, lots of family fun, and an opportunity for family photos.
You’ll find sunflower fields all over the Lone Star State – from North Texas to West, Texas, Houston, and south.
Also, if you can’t hire a professional photographer to come along with you, don’t worry; your phone camera will do. I take all my photos from my Apple 10 phone, and they look amazing every time.
Sunflower Fields in Texas To Visit
Like any other flower, Mother Nature controls when the flowers will bloom. It’s always best to check the farm’s website to ensure their crops have bloomed, especially if you’re going out there to pick your own sunflowers. I do love a beautiful flower bouquet like the one above.

Extra sunflower field viewing
- I got a whiff that you can see a beautiful sunflower field in Whitewright on Fiddler’s Road right off State Highway 160. I’m not sure, but I believe this is on private land, so please respect that.
- You can find sunflower fields right off Hwy 287 in Ennis, just a short drive from Dallas. This route is such a lovely scenic drive.
- The sunflower field in Waxahachie is no longer there.
