California Poppy White Eschscholzia Californica is a North American native perennial wildflower that is most traditionally classified as an annual garden flower. California Poppy White seeds are best propagated when they are sown directly outdoors in spring. This particular Eschscholzia Californica produces linen-white, cup-shaped, satiny flowers on a top of the mounds of very attractive, fern-like, bluish-green foliage. The blooming White California Poppy attracts bees and butterflies.
California Poppy White can be grown just about everywhere in a garden, and because of its striking appearance this poppy flower looks terrific in rock gardens, mass plantings, window boxes, borders, containers, along roadsides, and hillsides. Eschscholzia Californica seeds have to be watered right after sowing, and the soil must be kept moist until the seedlings develop their first leaves. California Poppy self-sows itself heavily and tolerates drought, heat, cold, and poor soil.
