California Poppy
Eschscholzia californica
Previous Plant    Back to Thumbnails    Next Plant

In early 2020, we hardly received any rain. Many flowers had not bloomed at all while others were smaller than normal. But the poppies on Green Valley hill were the best show I've ever seen from them!

Late-season poppies tend to be more yellow than orange for some reason. This photo was taken on October 1.

Since I have a backyard full of California poppies, I figured I could cut a seed pod open and take a look! Photos 15-23 are from my yard.

The minute I pressed on this pod, it popped open and the seeds scattered.

In 2014, there was a poppy bush near the main park entrance that had pale yellow flowers.
