Sunflowers in N. California?
8 months ago

Can anyone share some locations in Northern California where you can see fields of sunflowers? I went out last weekend in Napa and didn't find any. I know there must be some good fields somewhere near. Googling I've only some up with some locations near Sacramento. Thanks in advance for any help.

I recently drove past a field of cultivated sunflowers somewhere between Hollister and San Juan Bautista on Hwy 152(6?). The plants were about 3-4 feet tall, and racing past in my car, they looked like they were more green plant than flower head. I expect to be out that way again in a couple of weeks, and I could get a more exact location, if you're interested.

call them first to make sure the flowers are still in bloom in this late summer

Thanks- I'll look into a couple of those.

So you think the flowers will all be gone by now?

Yes they are.  There are fields of them grown by farmers, they are being harvested now. Only a few homes have some in their gardens
