From April through October – and sometimes longer – you’ll see spectacular patches of colors as you drive near the farm fields of Lompoc Valley – Stock, Larkspur, Delphinium and Bells of Ireland along with other cut flower varieties are grown in abundance by local growers such as Ocean View Flowers.
Most of the flower fields are located west of Old Town Lompoc, along Central Avenue and Union Sugar Avenue. But some are also located at the east entrance to town.
As a courtesy to the growers, visitors and photographers are asked to please keep vehicles on paved roads when touring and taking photos, and do not walk (or allow your pets or children to run) in the flower fields.
In springtime, visitors can also enjoy wildflowers blooming on country roads and hiking trails around Lompoc – poppies, lupine, mustard and more can often be spotted from late March through April.
