The Carlsbad Flower Fields

 Luther Gage brought ranunculus seeds to the area in the 1920's. He grew them near Frank Frazee's vegetable farm in South Oceanside. They became "Luther Gage Giant Tecolote Ranunculus Bulbs."  The name tecolote came from owls that nested on his property.  

Today the fields bloom from March 1 through May.
