The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch opened Friday The final day? It’s always Mother’s Day, which is May 12 in 2019.
El Nino rain in February should mean magnificent Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch blooms now in session through May 12.
Mellano & Company of San Luis Rey is the production arm and onsite grower. The Ecke family owns the land. Over 50 acres are devoted to raising the ranunculus bulb crop; approximately five acres are used for other specialty flowers.
Note that peak bloom, when all of those super-pink and mega-yellow and really-really-red flowers are doing their amazing thing, can vary each year, so you’ll want to follow the attraction’s social feeds to time your visit.
If peeking at the peak is your jam, that is. But it is pretty special at any time.
Also good to keep in mind?
There’s plenty to do at The Flower Fields, beyond reveling in all of that ranunculus-based beauty. A barre class, food trucks, Blues Day, a Sunset Wine Tasting, and so many other cool things are dotting the 2019 calendar.
Quite literally, or almost literally, you could be at The Flower Fields every day of its run and have something to do beyond strolling among its superstar, stem-rocking blossoms.
An adult admission is $18, and events may be ticketed separately, if you want to jump into a floral-arranging workshop or wine tasting or such.
The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch
For over sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch® in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year – from early March through early May – literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
The Flower Fields are an alcohol and tobacco-free environment, smoking and alcoholic beverages are not permitted onsite. No pets, bicycles, hoverboards or drones are permitted.
