California poppies grace the garden with their colors throughout much of the year
Annuals in their nature, California poppies are easily included into a garden to provide a stunning splash of color wherever it may be needed. Growing relatively quickly, seeds can be sown in the fall and, as long as they’re protected from the frost and cold of winter, will provide the gardener with a wonderfully early source of vivid blooms. Meanwhile, sowing another succession of seeds in the spring will ensure that California poppies grace the garden with their colors throughout much of the year. And with plants easily producing ripe pods, collecting seeds to ensure that poppy plants are always available is easy.
