Effervescent & EASY Eschscholzias!
Cal Poppies!

Let's give a shout out to California! Anything that brings joy these days is a good thing, and few floral displays are as pure as our state flower in bloom. Whether they're dotting the hillsides from afar, popping up on trails or even growing in highway medians, California poppies are here to bring cheer and NOW is a great time to plant them for Spring and Summer bloom.

They're also the epitome of easy. Drought tolerant and deer resistant, adaptable to poor, dry soil, as well as rich, garden soil, they're the kind of over-achieving plants that look oh-so-good with minimal effort on your part. In fact, Cal Poppies live longer if you keep them on the dry side over the Summer and self-sow reliably for free plants. Super pollinator friendly, you'll often find bumblebees sleeping in the closed blooms if you get out into the garden early enough!

But the best thing? The BEST thing about these radiant poppies is the alchemy they create when mixed and matched with their fellow native Californian wildflowers and other Mediterranean climate annuals! The possibilities are endless and the results – positively enchanting!

Eschscholzia californica 'Apricot Chiffon' Eschscholzia californica 'Rose Chiffon'

Eschscholzia californica 'Apricot Chiffon'
You can't beat the luscious beauty of Cal Poppy 'Apricot Chiffon' matched with the harmonious blue-purple of Penstemon heterophyllus 'Blue Springs' – it's one of our all-time favorite bloom-at-the-same-time color combinations!

Eschscholzia californica 'Rose Chiffon'
With swirling skirts sublimely shaded in rose and pink, each bloom is a work of art! Absolutely peerless for pairing with Springtime blues and yellows, try it with bloomiferous S. African annual Heliophila longifolia for a romantic vignette.

Eschscholzia californica 'Golden Chiffon' Eschscholzia californica 'Red Chief'

Eschscholzia californica 'Golden Chiffon'
Head-turning super-ruffly semi-double golden blooms add a sunny highlight to any garden! Lovely combined with white, purple, lavender or blue bloomers, we love to pair it with wildflowery CA native Gilia capitata "Blue Thimble Flower".

Eschscholzia californica 'Red Chief'
Add BIG COLOR to low water or native gardens – even parking strips – with this vivid, satiny and long-blooming poppy! Combine with trippy-cool blue Cerinthe major purpurascens for an eye-popping blaze of garden glory!

Eschscholzia 'Purple Gleam' Eschscholzia californica ‘Champagne’

Eschscholzia 'Purple Gleam'
Harmonious and at home in any native or cottage garden, ‘Purple Gleam’s’ single painterly flowers are unique among Cal Poppies. The best Eschscholzia for pairing with lavender and primrose-colored bloomers.

Eschscholzia californica ‘Champagne’
Elegant semi-double blooms open pale apricot-pink and fade to a creamy champagne hue. Unusual and delightful! Gorgeous paired with sweetly scented CA native Gilia tricolor “Bird's Eyes”
