The Californian poppy Eschscholzia Vivid mix is a herald of early summer. At 30cm. high, drifts of eye catching rose pink, orange, yellow, white, pale pink and lemon open faced flowers set against pretty ferny foliage make an eye catching display.The delicate brightly coloured petals seem to flutter in summer breezes. Flowering from mid June-September they provide a long season of colour, great for that bare, dry patch where nothing else will grow.

Sow directly outside 15-20°C from March to May on the surface of a finely tilthed soil, firm down and keep compost damp, allow to free seed the following year.

Average packet contents 500 seeds.

Happiest in free-draining soil in sunny positions.
