List of files and visuals associated with this text.

California Poppy grows well in gardens with dry soil and lots of sun. The plant is a perennial grown as an annual. The flowers remain closed during wet or cloudy weather. Seedlings are somewhat difficult to transplant and self seeded volunteers may be off types of inferior quality. Remove dead blooms to prolong and enhance blooming.

Direct seeding into the garden is preferred. The seed germinates in 10 to 12 days at 55 to 60 degrees. Plant the seed one-fourth inch deep. The plant is hard to transplant due to its tap root.
