California Poppy is a short-lived perennial (usually grown as an annual) native to California and Oregon, but is adapted throughout the western United States below 1220 m (4,000 ft.) elevation. The plants have feathery, highly dissected, blue-green leaves that clasp stems that grow from 30.5 to 61 (12 to 24 in.) tall. The four-petal flower measures 7.6 cm (3 in.) across and is golden-yellow to orange in color. The bloom period begins in April and continues throughout the summer.
California Poppy is adapted to many conditions, but needs well-drained soul and full sun. Seed should be broadcast 0.3 to 0.6 cm (1/8 to ¼ in.) deep. In areas where winters are very mild, seed can be planted in the fall; in all other areas, plant seed in the early spring. Once established, California Poppy can reseed itself.
