Giant California Poppy
Romneya coulteri – Matilija Poppy
Spectactular giant California poppy blooms on top stems that can get to 8′ tall. You can see them from miles away. Nows a good time to see them in bloom, since they’re now in bloom. They do have an underground rhizome – difficult to establish, easy to spread.
They belong in the back of a succulent garden, up against the house assuming you don’t have a white house.
