Hello, I would like to ask you if you please can tell me where can I find these type of flowers because I would like to visit them and take pictures. I live in Fresno and I am not sure if you have some available in this area or only in the Sacramento county. I appreciate your help and time, too.

Nice write up on sun flower, can I possibly raise these flowers in Nigeria please, and do you have any outlet that I can source the hybrid seed from? Please I need your definite answer and advise on this because I am thinking of going into an industrial production. Also I will be glad if I can have an idea of much it cost to raise sunflower per acreage. Thanks

Seed sellers are listed on the National Sunflower Association Website,  
Also, there is a cost of production study on the North Dakota State University for production of commercial sunflower.
