The ultimate wildflower, California Poppy adds the feel of broad sweeping meadows to even the smallest of plantings. The long stems hold vibrant orange, cup-like flowers that add a casual beauty when naturalized on slopes or hillsides.  A staple for erosion control mixtures, roadside plantings, and restoration projects. Great in rock gardens near drought-tolerant shrubs too. Tolerant of some filtered shade, it’s useful under oak trees. During a light breeze a large planting will have the flower heads gently swaying as a group. Be sure to add this beauty to your must-grow list of wildflowers.

California Poppy seeds are easy to grow and can readily reseed for next year - just like the famous California Poppy Fields in the Antelope Valley where super blooms are spectacular. Native to the western United States, California Poppy is the state flower of California and is a member of Papaveraceae family.
