Sunflowers & Zinnias

Capture the Colors of Fall with Sunflowers and Zinnias at Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard!

As summer fades and fall approaches, Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard begins our sunflower and zinnia season. Across our 8-acre field, over 10 sunflower varieties burst into bloom, showcasing different hues – from yellow and gold to orange, peach, red, plum, and even white and multi-colored varieties.

A Season-Long Spectacle

We utilize a technique called succession planting to ensure a continuous display of blooms throughout the fall season. This means new sunflowers are constantly maturing, offering you a fresh selection every week to 10 days. So, whenever you visit, you’re guaranteed to find a field with vibrant sunflowers waiting to be picked.

Capture the Perfect Shot (and Sunflower!)

Our sunflower field is not only a feast for the eyes but also a photographer’s dream. With their towering stalks and diverse colors, sunflowers create a stunning backdrop for capturing those perfect fall memories.

Pollen-Free Sunflowers for Lasting Beauty

We understand the importance of long-lasting enjoyment, which is why we specifically plant pollenless sunflower varieties. These beauties not only extended vase life but also prevent pollen from staining your car or furniture on the way home.

Zinnias: A Riot of Color

Complementing the sunflowers are our vibrant zinnia fields, featuring a mix of colors. Zinnias are known for their cheerful blooms and extended blooming period, adding an extra layer of charm to your fall experience.

Make Your Picking Easy and Enjoyable

Grab our clippers and explore the fields! After you’ve found your perfect sunflowers and zinnias, simply snip your selections and fill our sturdy take-home bucket. These vibrant blooms will create a breathtaking floral arrangement to brighten your home or a heartfelt gift for a loved one. Remember to return the clippers after you’re finished picking!

We look forward to flower picking this fall! Immerse yourself in the vibrant colors of our sunflower and zinnia fields, capture stunning photos, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
