Eschscholzia californica Carmine King - Carmine King California Poppy

The Carmine King California Poppy, Eschscholzia californica Carmine King will stand out in any garden setting. The creame centered pink flowers are smooth to ruffled and sometimes even semi-double. Eschscholzia californica Carmine King when planted from seed in the Fall. The Carmine King California Poppy grows in full sun and a variety of soils. Eschsholzia californica Carmine King can make it as a perennial but will be an annual for sure if given regular water and moist soil in the summer. I have concerns about using hybrid poppies in gardens near wild areas because they can freely cross with the local species. The Carmine King California Poppy will grow for a season or two and will likely renew itself from seed if at least a few seedpods are allowed to remain.
