How about a little sunflower power this summer, Montreal? Because a spectacular flower field is ripe for the picking.

The flower festival itself has over 100 varieties of plants, ranging from daisies, lavenders, marigolds, and zinnias, in an assortment of sizes and colours.

In August, La Belle de Coteau-du-Lac will host its annual prized sunflower fields. “Sunflowers are the queen flowers of photoshoots,” says the farm in French. “Our flowering sunflowers is the ideal place to come and strike a solo pose, with baby, children, friends, loved ones and even your four-legged friend ā€” in a multitude of varieties of vibrant sunflowers.”

The sunflower field will host a vast plot of thousands of flowers, in 60 different varieties including yellow, red, orange, and creamy white colours.

The farm also has a food court with several picnic tables, benches, and seats in the shade and also offers professional photographers (for a price) if you’re looking for a top-of-the-line shoot.

La Belle de Coteau-du-Lac says the u-pick sunflower field has been “very popular over the past two summers,” offering guests the chance to pick their own bouquets to “brighten up your home.”

Even if you don’t want to take the flowers home, the field is an absolutely breathtaking place for photoshoots and social media clout.
