US (IL): Local farm reflects on this year's sunflower planting process

Sunflower season is coming to a close. Now, one local farm is reflecting on this year's planting process.

L and A Family Farms in Paris, Illinois, used a different seed this year due to the shortage. Co-owner Brian Lau says it was more of a late-bloomer than the other variety but equally as beautiful.

To compensate, they had multiple planting days, so visitors could enjoy a continuous bloom.

Sunday is the last day to get lost in the sunflower maze, but Lau says there are other ways to enjoy these blooming beauties in the coming weeks.

"We're planning on being open on Saturday mornings on certain dates for people to come out and just pick the cut flowers because our Zinnias fields, our cut flower meadow, and our cut sunflowers will still be blooming until we get a frost," co-owner Brian Lau said.
