California Poppy Carmine King

California Poppy (Eschscholzia Californica Carmine King) - Start Poppy seeds and grow this rosy-red wildflower. The bright carmine rose colors make it shine like a true garden star! As with all California Poppies, Carmine King is an annual in colder climates and a perennial in warmer regions. With the right conditions, it can bloom from early April through August. The California Poppy flower resembles delicate crepe paper flowers. Well-suited for meadows and naturalized settings, California Poppies easily establish from flower seed. They are versatile, cheery flowers and are rewarding wherever they are grown. California Poppy care includes deadheading spent Poppy flowers to prolong blooming and enhance the appearance of the plant. If planted in well-drained soil, Poppies will thrive with very little water.
