Description

Californian Poppy 'Lady Marmalade' is a stunning new variety that resembles a rose, with masses of semi-double blooms in shades of golden yellow with orange centres. This easy to grow annual may look delicate but it is hardy, wind tolerant and ideal for poor, dry soils. Taller than most at 35cm (14"), its sunshine blooms will really stand out in beds and borders and will brighten patio pots from June to September – it makes a wonderful cut flower too. An RHS perfect for pollinators variety, Californian poppy 'Lady Marmalade' is ideal to use as a beneficial companion plant near your veg plants. Eschscholzia plants can be left to self-seed, creating natural drifts of colour. Flowers June to September. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 25cm (10").

Sowing

Direct sow eschscholzia seed outdoors where they are to grow from March to May or in September for overwintering. Autumn sowings will flower in late spring. Choose a position in full sun on any poor, well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills spaced 15cm (6") apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 15cm (6") apart.

Alternatively, sow California poppies indoors from February to March at a temperature of 15-21C (60-70F). When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.

More Info
Gradually acclimatise eschscholzia plants to outdoor conditions when all risk of frost has passed before planting outdoors in any well drained soil in full sun. Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded eschscholzia flowers to prevent them from self seeding.
