Eschscholzia californica 'Fire Bush'

I love Californian poppies, their elegant silvery-green leaves and the fact they pop up again year on year, self-seeding perfectly and not too much.

Description

I love Californian poppies, their elegant silvery-green leaves and the fact that they pop up again year on year, self-seeding perfectly and not too much. This rich tomato soup red-orange is such a great colour, we encourage it to make itself at home in all the strong-coloured areas of the garden here.

Care Tips

Great for growing in container pots or borders with poor soil where it will thrive on neglect and freely self-seed. Deadhead regularly to encourage more blooms.
