PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Eschscholzia californica Ex. 'White Linen'|
|Californian Poppy 'White Linen'|
|Sold out for now|
|This drought-tolerant plant, with its finely divided grey-green foliage and shiny creamy petals, looks wonderful near the edge of the border. Cut quite hard back after the first flush of flowers and it will quickly regenerate and flower well into autumn without becoming too straggly. They will happily grow in very poor soil, even gravel. Collected from the named variety, but other Eschscholzia grow in the garden, so there is the possibility of cross-pollination.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Californian poppies resent disturbance, so best direct sown March-April. Scatter seed thinly and gently rake into the soil. Thin as necessary.|
