Californian Poppy 'Peach Sorbet'

Eschscholzia californica, California poppy

Double to semi-double blooms in a mouth watering combination of soft peachy-pink with a hint of cream. Eschscholzia 'Peach Sorbet' is free flowering, producing a carpet of flowers set above delicate ferny foliage. These dainty hardy annuals are tougher than they appear and positively thrive on poor, dry soils. The papery flowers attract bees and hoverflies, and make excellent, if short-lived, cut flowers. California poppies are easy to grow in beds and borders, or let them self seed throughout gravel gardens to form natural drifts. Height and spread: 25cm (10”).
