If you read my previous posting, you know that the plants we purchased in 2006 from the California Native Plant Society plant sale were abused (by us) before they finally got planted. This bush poppy was just a stub sticking out of a pot with a label next to it when we planted it. We thought it very unlikely to be alive. We watered it occasionally, when we remembered, and amazingly it decided to grow and bloom this spring! These native plants sure are amazing.
Sorry about the odd angle of the photos. I had to shoot around and through other plants.
Now that its roots are down, I think this plant will probably grow and thrive without any help from us. I wonder if these will self-pollenate or if we need to get another in order to have live seeds?
