More details about Formula Mix

Eschscholzia californica. This colourful blend of California Poppies includes yellow, orange, red, purple, and white flowers. The bright flowers appear atop stems that grow to only 30cm (12") tall, and they open from late spring right through summer. They are attractive to wild and domestic bees and a host of other pollinators. The Formula Mix is easy to grow and performs best from direct sowing in the spring or fall. California poppies are drought resistant, so they are suitable for xeriscaping, and they're also deer resistant.
