California Poppy Orange Eschscholzia Californica is a short-lived perennial that belongs to Papaveraceae family. California Poppy seeds can be started directly outdoors in spring. Eschscholzia Californica forms branching mounds of finely divided, fern-like, blue-green foliage with long floral stems and produces single, cup-shaped, silky, bright-orange flowers. Orange California Poppy blooms from late spring to early summer attracting bees and butterflies.

California Poppy Orange looks fabulous in mass plantings, alpine and rock gardens, flower beds, borders, pot and containers. Eschscholzia Californica seeds germinate approximately in two weeks, and once established, California Poppy is very drought and heat tolerant that makes this plant perfect for planting in sandy, dry locations with good drainage. California Poppy Orange is a great cut flower..

Sowing: Sow California poppy seeds in early spring, planting the seed 1/4" below the surface of the soil; keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur in 2-3 weeks at a soil temperature of 60-65 degrees. In USDA Zones 7 and warmer, bulk poppy seeds can be fall planted. Poppies do not transplant well, and must be planted while very small if started indoors.

Growing: Water seedlings occasionally, but decrease watering as the plants mature; poppies tolerate drought well and will only need watering in periods of extreme dryness. This plant tolerates most soils that drain well, as well as adapting to seaside conditions. This plant does not need rich soil, and actually blooms best in poor soil. Pinch off faded blossoms for the most prolific blooming. These flowers prefer cool temperatures, usually blooming in spring and early summer and going dormant when the summer heat begins. Though an annual, it will reseed itself and return the following year. Poppies attract bees and butterflies.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
