Beautiful picture! Great looking nursery property, is it on the Peninsula?
Hi Tracey -

Obviously not my picture, but you might recognize a couple of the common names of this beautiful poppy:
“Matilija Poppy”
“Fried-Egg Flowers”

They can be invasive, I have them on the back hill. This plant now stands about 6' tall by 8' wide x 4' wide (I trim this side to keep it off the path). It has been in for a year.

They can also be difficult to get started and I've heard that about 1 in 3 plants do well. Of the three I have, one is doing great, one is so-so and one is marginal. The gophers have been after the two that aren't doing well. :-)
