Amazing Michigan Sunflowers and Where to Find Them


Every late July and August, stunning Michigan Sunflowers are a sight to behold! But they can be hard to find! Check out Michigan Sunflowers locations all across Michigan below!

Their cheery faces contrast so beautifully against their bright green leaves.  In the past, I've only seen photos of beauties so I never really understood how magnificent they are in person! 


“Sunflowers end up facing the sun, but they go through a lot of dirt to find their way there.” 
― J.R. Rim

Leabo Farm


Directions: Head north on S. Joseph Street, turn left onto M204.  It is around a mile down the road on the left.

I am newly obsessed with Michigan sunflowers after we happened across a glorious field with rolling hills of happy yellow sunflowers while on a road trip across Sutton's Bay in the Leelanau Peninsula this summer. 

Leabo farms are super sweet to put out a ladder so viewers can have a birds eye view of the colorful flowers.  You can park in their yard and take as many photos as you like and buy some blooms to cheer up your home or office!

Farm Manager Justin Wendzel said the multi-colored sunflowers are planted in mid-May and bloom for about two full weeks in August. 

“We love seeing families make memories here at the farm," Wendzel said. "What better way than a field full of beautiful sunflowers? When you see a field of sunflowers you just can’t help but smile.”

Tickets are around $13 per person, though children under 36 inches tall are admitted free. Each ticket gets visitors a wagon ride out to the sunflower field and one sunflower to take home.
