Eschscholzia California or California poppy thai silk Rose chiffon
California poppy rose is a fine, elegant, low plant with silk-like pink flowers. You can use the flowers for your cutting garden or in a colorful mixed border. We planted some of the plants in full sun in a wooden planter together with the apricot flowers and they bloomed abundantly for weeks! To get longer stems you can plant them in partial shade and closer together.

How do I grow California poppy from seeds?
Direct sow into the open ground from March to May for flowering from June to September or start in seed trays. California poppies don’t like too much root disturbance therefore you will have to sow them in large cell seed trays.
Or direct sow a few millimeters deep in rows approximately 20 cm apart. After 7 to 14 days the first seedlings should emerge. You can extend the flowering season by sowing a second time in June. We have had a good experience with succession sowing the California poppies and also the papaver rhoeas Amazing grey.

California poppies are not very tall. If you like to extend the stem length you can plant them in a more shaded spot in the garden. Planting close to each other also helps to stretch the stems. Flowers last a bit longer in the vase than “real” poppies. Expect around 5 days if you pick a stem with multiple flower buds. You don’t have to treat their stems. The flowers may go floppy after picking. Place stems in fresh water in a cool place and the stems will recover.
