The California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) is a naturally seeding colorful wildflower. The plant has a deep taproot and ferociously reseeds, making it a possible pest plant in some locations. The flowers are solitary on long stems, silky-textured, with four petals, each petal about 2 to 6 cm long and broad. The petals close at night (or in cold, windy weather) and open again the following morning, although they may remain closed in cloudy weather. California poppy is remarkably drought tolerant and quickly lays down mats of blue-green, lacy foliage and orange colorful blooms. It is an ornamental plant and it is used medicinally and in cooking. The plant is easy to establish by seed, as are all poppies, and thrives in full sun locations with highly fertile but well-drained soil. It survives mild winters in its native range, dying completely in colder climates. California poppy is useful as a container plant and also excels in sandy soil. Very little effort needs to be expended on the gardener’s part in the care of California poppy. It is a hardy and reliable performer with few needs outside occasion watering when young.
Growing guide for California Poppy Mixed Seeds

Planting instructions

Sow seeds or plant transplants in garden soil.

Simply sprinkle seeds on the soil bed evenly and lightly press them into the soil.

Keep the soil evenly moist and they will germinate within one week.

Growing Requirements

pests

Healthy poppy is rarely attacked by pests, but if not taken care of, the plant is susceptible to bacterial and fungal diseases. Aphids and thrips are sap-sucking insects that dine on the juices of the California poppy and other ornamental plants. Aphids, tiny green or yellowish pests, are usually found on the undersides of the leaves and on the joints of stems. California poppies are susceptible to several moisture-related diseases that affect the foliage and stems, including powdery mildew, gray mold and downy mildew. Downy mildew and gray mold cause the plant to appear discolored and spotted.

soil

Sandy loamy soil with pH 5.6 to 6.5 is ideal for its cultivation.

spot

You can choose a brightly sunny or partially sunny spot.

temperature

Maintain the temperature between 20 to 25°C

watering

Water the flowers regularly to keep them healthy.

how to harvest

You can harvest California poppies for cut flowers, or you can harvest them for their seeds. Prune flower stems with hand clippers as the buds begin to open if you want to use California poppies as cut flowers. They will continue to open fully when placed in water and should look nice for three or four days. Examine California poppies while they are blooming if you want to harvest their seeds. Wait until the petals drop off. Clip off the seed pods after they turn brown and you see grooves up and down the pods. Place them in a paper bag, container or box. The pods will open up on their own in the next several weeks, spilling out their seeds.
