Buy Eschscholzia californica 'Mission Bells' Californian poppy: Perfect for novice gardeners

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy annual (will die after flowering, but usually self-seeds)

    Californian poppies are incredibly easy to grow (they even flourish in very poor soils) but they will put on a dazzling, summer-long performance. The 'Mission Bells' mix contains a brightly coloured blend of white, red, yellow and pink shades, which are perfect for cottage gardens and meadows, although they look great in any naturalised setting. The bees love them and they also make excellent if short-lived cut-flowers.

  • Garden care: Prepare the bed well and sow shallowly into drills from March to May where they are to flower. When large enough to handle thin out the seedlings to 10 - 15cm apart, taking care not to damage the tap root. Water when necessary, but avoid excessively wet conditions.

  • Sow: March-May or August-September

  • Flowering: June-August

  • Approximate quantity: 425 seeds

super bright and reliable


These have found a home right outside my south facing front porch in a bit of broken edging/path and they are striking and super pretty. I haven't touched them at all and they are doing fine.

Hello. If sown now will these flower this summer? Thank you!


Hello, Yes, there is a very good chance that they will (provided conditions are right), but they may flower a little later in the summer.
