More details about Yukon Gold

The fully double flowers have ruffled, two-tone petals that are rich orange at the centres and golden yellow at the edges. It has the very typical growth habit of standard California poppies, but the flowers are truly distinctive, and appear over a very long period from spring through summer. It would look spectacular planted en masse in any setting, but will also work in containers and conventional flower borders. Yukon Gold grows 38-60cm (15-25") tall.
