Eschscholzia californica

The Californian poppy, a hardy annual although some plants survived last winter with me . Self seeds itself if given the right conditions. Glaucous blue, feathery foliage with mainly vibrant orange silky flowers, although creams, yellows and pinks are also available. Tap-rooted, so sulks if moved. Like the erigeron karvinskianus, it is a fan of a dry sandy sunny site.
