Description

Poppy (California) - Copper Pot - Eschscholtzia californica

Perennial/ Grown as Annual - The blossoms of this luminous California poppy glow in radiant coppery-red shades, especially dazzling when lit by the sun. Copper Pot's satiny flowers shine like bright beacons above mounds of feathery, gray-green foliage. Their vibrant colors are real show stoppers throughout spring and early summer. Ideal for drifts of cheerful color, these easy to grow flowers will often naturalize and happily resow themselves for another season of bloom. Copper Pot is perfect to cover bare or neglected garden areas.

Soil & Water:Sow seeds directly into a finely textured, well-drained garden bed in full sun as early in spring as the ground can be worked. Keep soil moist as seedlings emerge. When mature, poppy plants can handle dry conditions, but they will always bloom longer if regularly watered.

Planting & Growing: Plant as early as possible in spring, as poppies can handle light frost and bloom best and longest when plants get a good start in cool weather. In mild winter climates, poppies can also be sown in late fall to overwinter for spring bloom. Except in very poor soil, these California poppies will grow and flower readily with no added fertilizer. Space seeds several inches apart, cover 1/4" deep and firm soil gently. Weed young seedlings carefully. If seedlings come up very thick, thin poppies early but delay final thinning until seedlings are well established in spring. Space seedlings 6" apart as plants need room to grow and bloom.At season's end, allow spent flowers to form pods and drop seed if you want poppies to self-sow for next year's spring flowers.
