Color splash: Visit the Flower Fields in Carlsbad
Apr./May 2012 California Bountiful magazine
Designed to take your breath away, the 50 acres of Giant Tecolote ranunculus in the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in San Diego County offer eye-popping blooms that highlight more than 85 years of floral cultivation and plant breeding. After the bloom, bulbs are gathered and processed for sale at garden centers across the country.
Open through mid-May, the farm offers tractor rides, activities for kids and quiet space for adults. Call 760-431-0352 for information or visit www.theflowerfields.com.
