California Poppy


This easy to grow perennial thrives everywhere from coast to mountain top and looks great roadside or on a sunny slope. The free-branching slender stems carry blue-green fern-like finely-divided foliage. Satiny-petaled flowers ranging from pale yellow to deep orange bloom spring through summer.
