Flower Power Blooms at The Flower Fields in Carlsbad
Get ready to live colorfully as The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are officially open for business.
The famous blooms are one of the most vibrant and spectacular displays of natural beauty that spring has to offer.
For over sixty years, the rolling hills of Carlsbad have been home to a 55-acre rainbow of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus. Their double-petaled blooms sitting atop tall, straight stems are truly one of the country's most stunning and coordinated displays of natural color and vibrancy.
When you visit this breathtaking wonderland, you'll be greeted by the sweet fragrances of these awe-inspiring flowers. The endless rows of color-coordinated blooms exude joy and wonder. From the brilliant oranges, fiery reds and sunshine yellows to the delicate pinks, dreamy purples and pristine whites, these radiant colors will immerse you in a floral paradise many have only seen on Instagram.
But that's not all - The Flower Fields are more than just a feast for the eyes and nose. It's also an opportunity to indulge in a host of spring activities and events. There is everything from outdoor music performances and foodie favorites to workshops, yoga classes and more!
Whether you're looking to escape into nature's splendor, enjoy a romantic date, create unforgettable family memories or even pop the question, The Flower Fields have the perfect backdrop.
The 2023 season’s theme is “Live Colorfully” and that sentiment includes the color of beauty, of rebirth and of joy. Fred Clarke, the General Manager of The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, says, “Visitors can’t help but smile here.”
The fields offer a plethora of events and activities to inspire guests to embrace the theme. Visitors can take part in a Meditation and Sound Healing Workshop, a Flower Design Workshop or Toddler and Me Yoga Story Time about plants and flora.
