Stop and Smell the Flowers: 7 Must-Visit Flower Fields in the Philippines

Flores de Mayo reminds us of the splendor in our surroundings. Its parade of loveliest ladies—Santacruzan—is also a showcase of the beautiful blooms in the country. Flowers are significant in many religious celebrations, but they’re remarkably notable during May, when most of them are in full bloom. 

When out and about, why not witness the dazzling display of flowering plants on lush fields? All around the Philippines, here are the flower farms you can visit for a mood-boosting trip: 

Northern Blossom Flower Farm, Benguet 

Address: Sayangan, Atok, Benguet
Entrance fee: P50 to P250
Best time to go: February to April

Roughly 1.5 hours away from Baguio City is the Northern Blossom Flower Farm of Atok, Benguet. The farm’s popularity started when the public took notice of its frost-covered rose cabbage—a rare sight in a tropical country. 

The two-hectare-wide plantation also boasts rows of snapdragons, dusty miller, rice flowers, delphiniums, and other unique flowers. For those looking to take home a piece of this farm, it offers freshly picked flowers ready for anyone to buy.

Haight’s Place, Benguet 

Address: Barangay Paoay, Atok, Benguet
Entrance fee: P50 to P150
Best time to go: December to May 

Another unique farm worth visiting is Haight’s Place, which is less than 15 minutes away from the Northern Blossom Flower Farm via Halsema Highway. This tourist destination is most prominent for its cherry blossoms, or Sakura in Japanese, which started blossoming in 2018. 

In other countries with Sakura, it’s illegal to pluck or shake the cherry blossom trees. But it’s allowed to take the petals that have fallen to the ground. 

EMV Flower Farm, Cavite 

Address: Sitio Portugal, Tambo Malaki, 4122 Indang, Cavite
Best time to go: July, September, and October 

This flower field is just a few hours away from Metro Manila, providing urbanites a much-needed visual break. The farm offers chrysanthemum as its most popular flower, but it has a wide range of blossoms, including cosmos and sunflower. 

Offerings from this farm include arranging and delivering freshly cut flowers. The EMV Villa also provides accommodations for staycations, special events, and photoshoots.

Celossian Flower Farm, Rizal

Address: Sitio Tamalan, Baras, Rizal

Sirao Garden, Cebu

Amsterdam hosts some of the world’s most beautiful flower gardens, but one need not go here to witness such majestic sights. Instead, take a trip to Cebu City and visit the Sirao Garden, also known as “Little Amsterdam.”

The farm features seemingly endless rows of colorful flowers, including aster, sunflower, daisy, and chrysanthemum. The most dominant blossom, however, is the celosia, which thrives in a tropical climate and blooms in different vibrant colors. 

Besides the color burst of blooms against a mountainous backdrop, Sirao Garden has other Amsterdam-themed installations like a mini windmill, native tree house, and swings.

Flowers symbolize beauty and cheerfulness, and doubtless, they’re gifts of nature that let out excited smiles. On your next trip, let these flower fields bring you joy and peace.
