California Poppies are classified as a hardy annual in colder climates but perform as a perennial in mild areas.
California Poppies are not exclusively 'Californian'. Parts of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Arizona are host to these beauties too!

California Poppy 'Orange'

(Eschscholzia californica)

The iconic California wildflower & the official state flower. Easiest of wildflowers to grow. After the first wave or two of bloom, cut plants back to foliage & water for rebloom.

'Because the flowers close in low light or with darkness, the Spanish Californians called them the "dormidera", the drowsy ones.'
