Pick Your Own Sunflowers At This Charming Farm Hiding In Iowa

While everyone always talks about spring flowers and the bright colors before summer’s heat rolls in, fall often gets overlooked. Many of Iowa’s brightest and most beautiful blooms don’t show themselves until the weather has begun to cool down – like the giant sunflowers that have been getting a lot of attention lately! Sunflowers tend to look their best in the late summer or early fall, after a few months of growing and stretching towards the sky. If you’re looking to brighten up your home with these beautiful blooms, head to the Quad Cities area and pick your own bouquet at Miss Effie’s Country Flowers.

Miss Effie’s is open Thursday and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.. On Saturdays, you can pick your own from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Sundays, the hours are 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.. In addition to having a beautiful garden where you can pick your own beautiful bouquets, the farm features a store that stocks the area’s freshest jams, honeys, and gourmet foods.
