California Poppy, Orange (Eschscholzia Californica) Seed can be stored in a dry, cool place, not in the refrigerator. The flowers tend to bloom annually. The flowers are orange and tend to be 12-18 inches tall once they mature, with beautiful blueish green foliage that branches out alternately. Each stem has a solitary flower with four large petals that will close in the nighttime or when it gets cold, but will reopen when conditions brighten or warm. Within its native range, it's a perennial, but in colder climates becomes an annual. It will bloom from Spring to Summer.
The soil must be average or well-drained in order to have optimal results. The flowers will tolerate sandy soil and loamy soil. They are used for deer resistance, showy flowers, extended blooms and they are easy to grow. It's known as being one of the most famous wildflowers to be naturally grown in the world, and can cover entire hillsides, especially on the Pacific Coast.
