The sunflower is in a state of flux as shoppers scramble to find the perfect shade of red for their winter outfits.
Sunflower season, which typically starts in mid-January, typically starts after Labor Day.
The best time to start shopping is the first week in February, when the leaves are beginning to turn a darker shade of brown.
If you have trouble finding the perfect color, try to pick the darker shade first, because that will give you a chance to pick up the colors on the way back home.
You can also buy a few sunflower seeds and use them as a substitute for other colored peels.
