Eschscholzia Californica, Californian Poppy - Aurantiaca Orange, untreated

£0.79

A tall, orange-peel coloured, Californian poppy with delicate, silvery foliage. Bright single flowers.

Short-lived silky petal flowers appear over a long period, and self seeds freely.

Flowers June-September.

Dislikes root disturbance, sow seeds in September in situ, or in Spring.

Height 15+ cm, thin to 15cm spacing.

Prefers a poor sandy soil and a sunny position but is easily grown in an ordinary garden soil. Succeeds in a hot dry position. Plants grow well in maritime climates.

If the dead flowers are removed before they set seed the plant will continue flowering for a longer period.

The flowers are very attractive to bees.
