It's sunflower time. The large, majestic fields located throughout the D.C. area are starting to bloom, and 7News is On Your Side with a list of where to find them, photograph them and pick them!


McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area

This sunflower field is off River Road in Poolesville in western Montgomery County. According to the wildlife area's website, run by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, this year's sunflowers started blooming in mid-July. To help sunflower fans keep track of them, DNR updates THIS PAGE with pictures of the plants' progress. DNR also has resources on that page to help people find the flower fields, which aren't easy to spot from the road! No picking allowed in this area, though!

Whitetails Farm

This new farm on Piedmont Road in Clarksburg should have blooms through about August 7th or 8th! 7News meteorologist Eileen Whelan was there live on Friday, July 20th. Details in the video below.

The Sunflower Garden

The Sunflower Garden is situated off Manchester Road in Westminster. If you're looking for a place that lets you take the flowers with you, this is that place. You can cut your own blooms and use them to decorate your home! Blooms are expected through September! Find more on their Facebook page.


Burnside Farms

The Burnside Farms sunflower field is off Kettle Run Road in Nokesville. They plant successive sunflower crops to ensure at least six weeks of blooming flowers starting around mid-July running through Labor Day. Check their Facebook page for updates.
