California Poppy Seeds - Orange

When "wild" gardeners think of California poppies, this is the flower that comes to mind. Majestic, elegant, and stunningly colorful, this wild orange poppy is year-in and year-out among our most popular species. Though California Poppy Flower Seeds can, of course, be planted in smaller plots, they tend to truly dazzle when planted in abundance. And for all you folks who actually live in the Golden State (lucky!), this happens to be the California state flower.

How to Plant Orange Poppy Seeds

About California Poppies

The California Poppy, a vigorous bloomer, is highly drought-tolerant and tends to perform well in just about any environment, even arid and nhospitable ones. These beauties are easy to grow and require virtually no care

When to Plant Poppy Seeds

We highly recommend sowing seeds directly in the garden at the last spring frost date, but if necessary to start your seeds indoors, do so 2-3 weeks prior to the last frost. California Poppies do not like their roots disturbed and therefore should not be transplanted.

Where to Plant Poppy Seeds

California Poppies perform best in full sun, in sandy, poor to average, well-drained soils. They are heat and drought tolerant and are lovely additions to beds and borders, containers, rock gardens, and along paths or walkways.

How to Plant Poppy Seeds

Poppy seeds require a cool period to break dormancy, and some gardeners choose to cold stratify their seeds.

These poppies germinate most successfully in cool to moderate temperatures and they are, in fact, frost tolerant. Poppies flower best under cool spring weather conditions. Bloom decreases on poppies as temperatures increase in summer months.

If needed, add 2" of compost to your soil to promote drainage. Sow seeds shallowly with just 1/16" layer of soil to cover them, spaced about 6-8" apart.

How to Care for Poppies

Seedlings should sprout in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to about 8" apart.

Poppies should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize poppies.

It generally takes about 60 to 90 days for poppies to bloom after the seed is planted. This timing depends very much on your growing zone and when you plant, along with Mother Nature’s cooperation. The bloom season for poppies is spring to summer. Poppy plants will bloom for a few weeks, but the length of bloom time can be extended by regular watering and application of mulch for moisture retention, as well as regular deadheading of spent flowers. It is also recommended that the seed be sown in successive plantings to extend the bloom season of the poppies.

5.00/5 Based on 8 Reviews

  1. Glorious blooms!

    This was my first purchase of seeds from Eden Brothers. Based on the way my front yard looks now, I think every one of them germinated! I live in Southern California and remember as a kid seeing these happy blossoms everywhere. Now I can enjoy them in my own little corner of the world and I'm thrilled! I will shop Eden Brothers in the future.

  2. Fall Planting

    Planted this seed with the Larkspur for spring 2016 bloom. Will keep you posted. My brother's garden blooms this combination every year and it is beautiful.

  3. Memories of days before we were older

    Order from The Edens shipped to Califoria, appropriately, distributed to 50 small cosmetics containers and taken to Easton Maryland to a Cousins Reunion and shared with the people I have not seen in 45 years from all over the country. What a happy group.

  4. Great job!

    I love the Seed Packets; I'm putting one Packet into the DOI Veterans Theme Bag and sending a bag to US Department of Interior veterans as a way of thanking them for serving in our military services as well as working in the DOI; from east coast to HI and Alaska! Our organization is not yet a non-profit group & I thought long and hard about spending my personal funds on this but now that I have them, it has been well worth the expense and effort. Thank you!

  5. Tjhank you

    Seeds arrived nicely packed and have been planted.

  6. The California poppies came up

    I've had problems with little seed packets from the store in the past. Often the seeds don't sprout because conditions aren't perfect. So I bought 1/4 pound, figuring I could repeat until some sprouted. The first planting came up in abundance. (Oregon)

  7. Poppy Seeds - What they mean to me.

    My seeds were very small... how such wonderful life can come from such a small thing is to say the least...... interesting.
    I love my Poppy seeds... i scattered them all over... if just one from the thousands sprouts.... WOW.

  8. Outstanding

    Can not rave enough about my success with the Eden Bros CA Poppy. Blown away by the results.
