CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) — The Flower Fields in Carlsbad will welcome visitors for the spring season starting March 1.

The field is renowned for its acres upon acres of colorful Giant Tecolote Ranunculus and more than 100 floral species. The picturesque scenes bloom every spring and bring visitors to the North County to stroll through the flowers and enjoy other experiences like tours and a maze.

Seeds were planted months ago in order to create the dazzling display of Ranunculus.

The fields will stay open through May 9 and welcome guests from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily with reservations only, due to the pandemic. Other several safety measures in place include a visitor capacity cap, mandatory face coverings and social distancing, and increase cleaning procedures and hand sanitizing stations.

Last spring, the coronavirus pandemic cut the Flower Fields' season short due to business restrictions. Fans were able to enjoy the fields virtually on social media, but not in person.

"The Flower Fields is a charming, picturesque setting that can melt your cares away. We want our guests to be able to immerse themselves in the beauty and let the world stand still just for a day," said General Manager Fred Clarke.

Experiences such as the field's American flag of flowers, antique tractor wagon tour, artist gardens and aviaries, sweet pea maze, and Cymbidium Orchid greenhouse will return this season. Guests will also be able to pick their own fresh blueberries from the field's two-acre blueberry patch.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors 60+ and military, $10 for children 3–10, and free for children under three. Season passes and group tours, and private events are also available. More information is available on the Flower Fields website here.
