The Flower Fields comprises 50 acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus, a stunning flower that comes in many colors and can get up to 12 inches in diameter.

Along with the main flower fields, there are smaller displays that vary each year. In the past I have seen cymbidium orchids, poinsettias (blooming!), a sweet pea maze that the children always enjoy, and a 300-feet by 170-feet American flag created out of red, white, and blue petunias.

The Flower Fields are open to the public seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Prices for adults, $14; seniors 60+, $13; children 3-10 yrs, $7; children 2 yrs & under, free. Season passes are available from $16 to $30. Along with the Sweet Pea Maze (which is almost always there) are other things to do once you get tired of of walking around. Of course, wagon rides through the 50 acres are available at $5 for adults and $3 for children 3-10 yrs. I think this is the only place I ever have been whee adults are defined as anyone age 11 and over.

Smoking and alcoholic beverages are not permitted onsite. Bicycles, hoverboards, and drones also are not permitted.

I always forget which street the Carlsbad Flower Fields (see They look more spectacular than ever!) are on, so I just look for a landmark that is easily recognizable and can be seen from a long distance. Looks something like this:

We're not in San Diego anymore, Toto!

 

Actually, it didn’t look something like that. It looked exactly like that!

I made my annual pilgrimage to the Carlsbad Flower Fields this afternoon. For some reason they looked more magnificent than ever. The flowers are various types of ranunculus, mostly the Giant Tecolote Ranunculus, a hybrid, spread over 50 acres. The Flower Fields are open through May 13, 2012. ((
