The Carlsbad flower fields show beautiful color patterns of ranunculus flowers (ranunculi ). The planting is timed for maturity and best showing between March 1st and Mothers Day. 2017 was a particularly beautiful year, perhaps due to a bigger than normal rainfall.

Lots of family arrived and I paid to ride the tractor pulled vehicles around the lot. Better choice would be just to drive to the EAST side of the flower fields and walk around to view them for free.

This a great location for memorable photos with loved ones. I know because I cherish the photos of my mother who is now gone. This gorgeous field of flowers should be experienced by all at least once.

If you are willing to pay a lot of money ($16 per person) for some photo backgrounds, this is a fantastic way to spend a day. It is beautiful but it is even prettier from a slight distance outside of the fields themselves. I think...More

We found a $2 coupon in a magazine about Carlsbad on one of the main street in Carlsbad. The discount applied to the group.
