Many Moons ago locally grown flowers were woven deeply into the North County landscape. Sadly most of the field and greenhouse growers are gone but The Flower Fields stand strong thanks to your patronage and the admission cost. Beautiful-maybe a little bit Touristy but they do a great job turning this little farm into a worthwhile stop and point of... More

It takes a lot of work to keep these fields up, but the sight is simply amazing. For $5 more you can ride an antique tractor over the 30 acres and there are great places to take pictures. One of the real highlights is the field that makes up an American Flag. This is a do not miss attraction if... More

I have been in the Flower Fields 3x in one month. I would say those 3 visits have 3 different feedbacks. The first visit was the most enjoyable of them all as I was very relaxed, no expectations, and bought myself 2 bouquets of flowers from the Anderton Gardens. The 2nd visit was with my boys and the Santa playground... More

There's always something awe inspiring about looking out over beautiful flowers for far as the eye can see. The American flag flower display on Paomar Airport Road is pretty impressive. We love to take out of town guests here.

It is that time of year again when the flower fields are in bloom (typically just before Easter). The rows of various colors make it look like a colored carpet on the landscape. You can stroll through the fields and take pictures or they have rides on a hay wagon. There is a fee for going through the fields, but... More

I saw and heard about the Flower Fields online. Decided to make the trip. It is easy to find, lots of volunteers and employees around to answer questions and help. Wish they would have had more of the plants and flowers labeled so we could identify them. Lots of shade and tables and benches. The Rose garden was so nice.... More

From March 1 to May 10 the colorful 50 acre fields are alive with ranunculus flowers in many colors. It is just stunning. I have never seen anything like it. Fantastic! On the down side, while the cost is modest for a couple ($40 total), a family of 5 may be looking at a large expense for a limited return.... More

Very nice place to visit if you go by, you may take really good pictures and get some good ideas how to improve your own garden. Nothing great, but nice.

50 acres of Ranunculus takes one's breath away. Rows of these small flowers look like a rainbow on the ground. The ranunculus is from the buttercup family and is native to Asia.These flowers are single or double blooms in a cup shape which grown from 14" to 24". It is opened to the public ten weeks each spring. If you... More
