Romneya coulteri, 35 seeds
You don't have to be a fan of California natives to recognize this 'Queen Of All Flowers'. Many instantly fall love in love with its large (usually about 8 to 10 inches) 'fried egg' flowers. These sweetly fragrant, white, papier-mache blooms with a huge boss of golden stamens in the center are carried on top of the stout, gray-green stems that are about 8 feet or more tall. Pinnate leaves vary from hand size to 2 to 3 inches long. Needless to say, this dramatic, extremely attractive, large shrub is a strong candidate for the title of "largest perennial" and is not suitable for a small garden. Matilija Poppies are tricky to germinate and need smoke/smoke-water treatment. Chances are though, that you are quite an experienced gardener and have already figured out that your next challenge is this plant and so that's why you're looking at this item, :-). Full sun. Hardy from zone 8 onwards. 6 feet wide, 8 feet tall. Drought tolerant when established. Hard-to-find fresh seeds, harvested 08/2015.
