California Poppy has yellow-orange flowers with four petals that sit atop long stems amidst a sea of blue green foliage. This flower is native in the western U.S., but has adapted to most areas of the country. It can withstand hot, dry conditions and prefers light soils in full sun where it readily reseeds itself. This plant is a perennial in zones 4 and above, but acts like an annual in colder climates. Blooms are abundant in spring through early summer.
