California Poppies — Lady Marmalade

Eschscholzia californica.  Lady Marmalade is a new California Poppy that was originally selected from the Mission Bells mix. Try it rock gardens, patio containers, or mass landscape plantings, and enjoy the rose shaped, semi-double blooms that appear in golden yellow with bright orange centres. The flowers are drought tolerant, deer resistant, and will often naturalize in warm, dry garden settings. Lady Marmalade grows to 35cm (14") tall on upright stems, and blooms July through September from a direct spring sowing.
