Plant Information

"This famous flower, the state flower of California, (a very similar sub-species is called Mexican Gold Poppy) carpets whole coastal hillsides up and down the Pacific coast, creating one of the most famous natural wildflower displays in the world, usually in April. Viewing this spectacle from their ships, Spanish explorers thought the “golden display” meant that there was in fact, gold to be found in the flowery hills. California poppy performs well almost everywhere with its dusty dark green ferny foliage and brilliant golden orange cup shaped flowers. A blooming plant is somewhat frost-resistant, and often reblooms nicely in fall meadows. Flowers close in cloudy weather. The name “Eschscholzia” is after the Russian botanist, J. F. Eschscholtz, who visited the California coast in the early 1800’s."

    Comments about American Meadows Dwarf California Poppy Seeds Sunbeam:

    I scattered seed late fall 2016 Early 2017 I started enjoying these buttery yellow, small and short flowers.
    I didn't water these, they germinated from snowmelt and spring rains only.
    I am hoping they reseed and that I find the next generation spring 2018.
    I planted in unamended, sandy, coarse fill dirt. So I would say that this poppy is pretty tough!

    Comments about American Meadows Dwarf California Poppy Seeds Sunbeam:

    The reason I gave a one-star is because the delivery & service was great, however, the seeds never grew. I was so looking forward to them. I was totally disappointed & sad they didn't.

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
