Color Your World – Opening Day at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad
For over sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of San Diego’s North 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, is also one of nature’s official ways of announcing Spring has arrived in Southern California.
Popular Flower Field attractions include an antique tractor wagon ride, an American Flag of Flowers, metal art sculptures and more!
