Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy)


A beautiful wildflower meadow mix of Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy) seeds.

Native to Western North America, bearing a great range of colourful flowers from late spring to early autumn, ranging from deep to subtle hues of orange, yellow, white, pink, purple to red. Provides copious amounts of seeds for future sowing.

A vigorous bushy, spreading annual, or short-lived perennial, it generally grows to a height of up to 45cm, with finely divided blue-green leaves, producing solitary, long-stalked, pretty flowers 7cm across, which are a magnet to bees and other vital pollinators.

Will thrive in poor, well-drained soil, or fertile soils (but not water-logged) and they need full sun for the flowers to open. Can be grown as a drought-tolerant pot plant. Good for exposed or coastal areas. Frost hardy to around - 5°C.

A holder of the The RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM), it is a plant that is always a strong contender for any flower border, cottage-style garden, gravel / rockery gardens, or wildflower meadow — and will always provide a great selection of cut flowers for florists.


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack.
