California Poppy Seeds

California poppy seeds produce heat loving annuals that are botanically distinct from their cousins in the genus Papaver. Although the shape of their flowers is quite similar to regular poppies, they are low growing and heat loving. In the right conditions they can self sow, but they will not infest the landscape. California poppies are members of the genus Eschscholzia, named in honour of the botanist Johann von Eschscholtz.
