  • There is a field of sweet peas at North V St and Airport Ave.
  • There is also a large field of stock directly adjacent to River Park, just east of Lompoc on Hwy 246. (You will have to drive into the park to view the flowers)
  • There are usually fields located west of town, download a map here in PDF format.
As you drive through the “Valley of Flowers,” you will see many patches of color which will be varieties of cut flowers. They include sweet peas, larkspur, stock, alyssum, delphinium, marigolds and others. Though it is true that fewer flowers have been planted in recent years, approximately 80% of US cut flower production comes from California, and over half of that comes from Santa Barbara County.

Please note that flower season runs from late May until mid August, peaking in late June. There may be isolated fields as late as October, but because crops are annually rotated, no guarantees can be made as to the location or quantity of the flower fields.
