The Dwarf California Poppy, or Eschscholzia californica, is a charming perennial plant that is native to California, but can be found in other areas of the United States as well. This plant belongs to the Papaveraceae family and is characterized by its delicate, fern-like foliage and vibrant, cup-shaped flowers that bloom in shades of yellow and orange.

As its name suggests, the Dwarf California Poppy is a compact plant that only grows to be about 6-10 inches tall, making it a great choice for rock gardens, borders, and containers. It prefers full sun and well-draining soil, and is generally easy to care for. Additionally, it is drought-tolerant and attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Overall, the Dwarf California Poppy is a beautiful and low-maintenance plant that can add a splash of color to any garden or landscape.

How to grow 

Choose the right location: California poppies prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Pick a sunny spot in your garden that has good drainage. Plant at the right time: The best time to plant California poppies is in the fall or early spring. They prefer cooler temperatures and will not do well in extreme heat. Prepare the soil: California poppies do not require much fertilization, but they do need soil that is loose and well-drained. Amend your soil with compost or sand to help with drainage. Sow the seeds: Scatter the seeds on top of the soil and cover with a thin layer of soil or compost. Water well and keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate. Care for the plants: Once the plants have grown, they require very little care. Water occasionally during dry spells and remove any weeds that may compete with the plants for nutrients.
