The Anderson’s Sunflowers

Sunflowers are one of the most well known flowers in America. If you are in Cumming, Georgia this means Anderson’s Sunflowers.  

.  Now owned by Dennis Anderson, Anderson’s Sunflowers is a farm, local landmark, and historical place. The fields here were originally used for corn and wheat until the 1980s when a new tradition of planting sunflowers began.  

The Anderson family plants their sunflowers in May, and usually  bloom during the first week in July. This beautiful scene only lasts for about two weeks, so start planning your trip right now! Follow the farm’s Facebook page for the most up-to-date information about when the flowers are expected to bloom.

And bring your camera because this is a wonderful place to snap pics of your friends and family. The entry fee is $10 per car, payable by cash or check only. You can walk around and take all the pictures you like, professional photographers scheduling sessions will be charged $35 per session.

You don’t have to leave all of the beauty behind when you go home. Pre-cut sunflowers are for sale by the dozen and half dozen. In the past, the farm has sold small and large vases of stunning sunflowers that you can take home as a souvenir or give them to someone special as a gift.  Or  you can cut your own flowers from the field!
