Washington Co., WI – It’s that time of year when sunflowers are in full glory, and neighbors across Washington County are showing off their sky-high foliage for our 6th Annual Sunflower Challenge.
These pictures were sent in by Susie Goneau of West Bend, WI, who focused on the disc floret where the seeds grow. A single sunflower can contain up to 2,000 seeds.

Sunflower fun fact: Sunflowers are bee magnets; each flower head produces a large volume of pollen and nectar that lures in bees and other pollinators. Vanderlinden, Colleen, June 2022, The Spruce, https://www.thespruce.com/fun-facts-about-sunflowers-3972329 Accessed September 19, 2022
