Eschscholtzia californica ‘Cream’

Amazing color variations in our locally native California Poppy are amazing but they seldom hold up for long in the garden. Either reverting back to orange in new seedlings or pooping out all together. Not this guy. Silky ivory/cream cupped flowers appear continuously all summer long in well drained soil with light summer water. The more prepared and enriched the soil is the longer these will bloom. The flowers rise above divided silvery foliage to about 8″ tall. Can form large plants in time. Re-seeds prolifically and the flower color COMES TRUE!. Let it spread around your garden under shrubs, in hot sunny spots. Often a short lived perennial. Wonderful flower color to mix with blues and purples. Easy to grow. Containers, Hellstrips. Etc. High deer resistance. Oregon native plant.
