Highlights of Flower Fields of Carlsbad:

Ranunculus flowers are the major plant contributing to The Flower Fields and the trend of growing these flowers was set years ago by Luther Gage in the 1920s and has been long maintained by the family. These rose like flowers bloom in the month of March and April with attractive colors including shades of yellows, pinks, whites, oranges, and reds. The farming processes go on for all 12 months; however, the site is kept open for visitors for the 2 ½ months when the flowers bloom in this area. The ranunculus bulbs are sold worldwide and they are usually planted in the month of September to January.

The garden opens from March to mid-May every day between 9 AM and 6 PM. The cost for adult tickets is $14, adults age 60 and older will pay $13 whereas kids between the age group of 3 to 10 can get their tickets for just $7.
