CALIFORNIA POPPY SEEDS
7 Varieties of California Poppy Seed.
Our property was seeded in glowing golden-orange California natives over a decade ago and they have come back strong every year since. They have attractive finely divided blue-green foliage and satiny 2-inch poppies. Summer watering is not required, but if given the bloom season will be extended. Plants grow 12-18 inches tall and are usually quite deer resistant.
