Spring is just around the corner! How do we know? Because the Carlsbad Flower Fields are in bloom and the hills are alive with a vibrant rainbow of color.
Blooming for over 60 years, more than 150,000 people visit the Flower Fields each year, many of whom have been returning year after year. The main attraction for visitors to the Flower Fields is the seemingly endless rows of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus, a type of multi-petaled rose which is also known as a Persian Buttercup. The Flower Fields is the only working ranunculus field in the world that is open to the public and almost every inch of the 50-plus acres has been dedicated to the renowned rose.
In addition to the awe-inspiring ranunculus displays, visitors can explore other perennials and annuals, including the American Rose Society’s rose garden featuring more than 170 All-American Rose Selection Award of Excellence winners, a Sweet Pea Maze, an American Flag of Flowers (planted on a 300 x 170 foot space) and a historic poinsettia display.
Take a leisurely stroll or a wagon ride through the Flower Fields and enjoy the panoramic ocean views, the sweet scent of flowers in the air and the vibrant blooms at your feet. It is a delight for all of your senses!
