Eschscholzia caespitosa 'Sundew' seedlings

[Photo: Eschscholzia caespitosa 'Sundew' seedlings.]Eschscholzia caespitosa, known in English as "collarless California poppy", "foothill poppy", or "tufted poppy", and in French as pavot de Californie or eschscholzia à feuilles menues, is an annual native to western North America.

Last year, I accidentally weeded out my California poppy seedlings because I was expecting them to look like my corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas) seedlings. I realized too late that they are quite different (they are the very fine leaves in the photo), and ended up with only one California poppy.

I got these seeds from Ontario Seed Company.
