White Linen California Poppy
Delicate white petals with yellow centers.
This gorgeous poppy’s soft, white petals reflect a golden light–much like linens hung to dry in the sun. Its prolific blooms and nutrient-rich pollen make it a favorite of bees. Self-sowing and drought-tolerant. Meadow or naturalized landscape plantings are especially effective. California poppies bloom from early summer into fall, but will take a break during heat waves. Adds elegance to rock gardens and borders.

Direct sow; do not transplant. Press seeds into bare, moist soil very early in the chill of spring. Keep soil moist, but not wet, especially when the days begin to warm and the soil is prone to drying out. Poppies can withstand crowding, so only thin if seedlings emerge less than 3" apart. Slow to start, but should take off once plants are 4" high. Mother of Pearl will bloom in several flushes and self-sows readily, so be sure to let some flowers go to seed. (Tip: to make broadcasting easier, mix seeds with sand.)
