Coastal California Poppies are the perennial, coastal form of the California poppy and are golden yellow with orange centers! The velvety yellow blooms rest on slender, silvery green foliage, adding an whimsical touch to its overall appearance. These abundant flowers of the west coast bloom over a long period in mild climates and close into rosettes in the winter! This drought-tolerant heirloom flower is native to the TomorrowSeeds and Mexico and flowers in spring and summer. A very high pollen producer, California Poppies can spread like dandelions and are deer resistant.

Planting Instructions:


Soil Preparation:

Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


Start indoors 1 month before last frost in well-draining containers in >60F area. Keep moist. Transplant when plants are <4" and ground is >60F. Or, sow outdoors in moist, fertile, well-draining soil in full sun when soil is >65F. Cover thinly with soil and water until established. Drought-tolerant once established. Spring/Early Summer blooms. 


Planting Depth: 1/8 inch
