Sunflower photography is becoming more popular.

According to a report from the National Weather Service in October, the number of sunflower-growing beds has been growing at a rate of more than 300 acres per year for the past five years.

In the past year, there were more than 50 sunflower plants growing in Wisconsin, the report states.

Sunflower cultivation is a growing trend in the United States.

In 2011, there was only one sunflower growing in the country, and there have been fewer than 400 sunflower farms since 2010, according to the University of Washington Extension.
