Sunflowers in Bloom at Agricenter!

MEMPHIS, TN --- Sunflowers are blooming today at Agricenter International.  Over 78,000 sunflower seeds were planted for the community to enjoy!  Agricenter International, a non-profit, enjoys providing this photography opportunity to the public free of charge.  

The sunflowers planted this year are the variety known as “Game Plan CL” and are 5-6’ tall. They will last a couple weeks, depending on the weather, and then their heads will get heavy with seeds and begin to droop.  Since there were two fields planted at staggered times, one month from now there will be a new stand of sunflowers blooming next to it.

Photography is allowed, but please do not pick sunflowers.  Agricenter has designated parking areas for you to enjoy the sunflowers – please enter on Timber Creek Drive and follow the signs for sunflower parking.
