I’m finally crossing grow a garden full of poppies off my life list this year. Next year we’ll work on expanding the color palette. I want a rainbow of California’s flower.
Beautiful! I would love it if your garden could come to Minnesota and be my wedding bouquet for a day.
I would be honored to have my flowers in your bouquet! Too bad they wilt soon after picking or I’d send you some.
Gorgeous! I want to run out and buy all the poppy seed packets I can find now!

I 100% support this statement.
They’re beeyooooooootiful! I always forget how lovely our state flower is. I esp. love the red-orange ones!

Last year I managed to grow these colors plus white, too. Next year I hope to reprise the white and add pink. We’ll see!
don’t forget to put the seed pods in a paper bag and wait for them to pop (sounds a bit like popcorn)
we scatter ours every year to fill in any bare patches

The best thing about ours is that they are already self-seeding. Grow, babies, grow!
You can get California poppies in a lot of colors now but the unadulterated bright orange is still classic. My mom has a delicate pink Oriental poppy and I have a different Oriental, “Patty’s Plum”– I love both!

We’ve been trying to get a watermelon-pink variety of the CA poppy to grow here with no luck. Isobel wants pink ones so bad. I think it might be a little too hot here for them.
