California Poppy

I inherited these white California poppies from the previous gardener, who left a legacy of all sorts of other white flowers in this plot. Each year, I collect the seed pods, leave them wrapped in my car in newspaper for a few weeks until I hear them exploding open, and then gather up the seeds to plant for the next year. It makes for a messy car but I do like saving seeds. Family: Papaveraceae
Genus: Eschscholzia californica
