Californian Poppy 'Sun Shades'

Eschscholzia mexicana, California poppy

Bright fiery orange and yellow blooms unfurl above a sea of ferny blue-green foliage for a bold summer display.

California poppies are easy to grow in beds and borders, or let them self seed throughout gravel gardens to form natural drifts. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 30cm (12").
