The Flower Fields of Carlsbad

Colorfully arrayed like royalty on hillsides overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Over 50 acres of visual splendor, The Flower Fields of Carlsbad, California is only open for about a two-month spring season in March and April. Over 150,000 come and visit every year to meander among the flowers and marvel at the brilliance of giant "Ranunculus" in full bloom. Take a stroll or take a ride through the fields on an open-air wagon. Bring a picnic lunch and by all means, don't forget your camera. Smell the fragrance and enjoy the views of the Carlsbad coastline.

Interestingly they only sell about 1 to 2% of the flowers grown. Although that number sounds small, it represents about about 1 million flowers. Besides featuring tours of the fields, a primary objective is harvesting 6-8 million flower bulbs each year. The flower bulbs are sold to retail nurseries and over the Internet.
