Walk around and learn the history of the garden
The Carlsbad Flower Fields were established in 1920s and started with ranunculus. The intention was to grow flowers for bouquets, but quite unexpectedly the blossoms started attracting crowds of spectators. Pretty soon the tourists were plentiful and people were flocking to marvel at flowers and take pictures. Edwin Frazee was the owner who understood the value of tourism to his fields and famously said that one penny for each picture taken here would make him rich. This idea was the seed of the current attraction which was opened to tourists in 1993, when Frazee formed a partnership with grower Mellano and Company and established the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch as we know it. They now get about 125,000 visitors every spring.
