I like these flowers. Self seed and don't require watering or fertilizer (in the Oregon Willamette Valley). Can easily get out of control but easy to weed back those you don't want. Nice plants to naturalize with/like California Poppies. Seeds collect well.

I planted seeds for this two or three years ago and nothing, then this year I had a plant come up in one of my grow beds. Since the plant that dominates that bed does not really get going until about July I decided not to pull it up(thought it was a weed) When it started to bloom I knew what it was and was very excited. It is a beautiful color and I hope is self sows. I would like to have a lot more.

freely self-sowing ... will sprout up anywhere. I treat them as weeds when they come up in unwanted areas, they do have a tough root system. I grow them as a dryland annual and just let them compete with the other drylanders (california poppy, larkspur, and rose campion).

This is a "self-sowing" annual. Once established, it can become difficult to remove. Attractive, ferny foliage. When flowers fade, large, decorative seed pods form (can be dried and used for floral arrangements).
