This will be the sunflower field’s return to Matthiessen State Park after not being planted in 2019 because of the large amount of rain.
The flowers bloom through July and by August they seed and wilt through early September, attracting pollinators and providing shade for deer, opossums and raccoons.
SRC TIP: Avoid the crowds, plan a mid-week roadtrip to see the sunflowers at Matthiessen. It's easy to keep social distance at the park during the week.
