These gorgeous huge poppies are bloomin’ up The Holler!

Also known as the Matilija Poppy, these are the largest flowers in the poppy family,

and they are the largest native California flower.

The blooms are 8 inches in diameter,

and the bushes grow to about 10 feet in height,

They are a challenge to grow, but so worth the effort!

Cheers to you & Happy Mother’s Day from The Holler’s Romneya~

  1. Your certainly know how to capture light. Impressive poppies. I just saw white poppies somewhere in the “wild” between Cuernavaca and Mexico city. Wondering whether they were not opium poppies. There are clandestine plantations everywhere in Mexico… What “brand” are yours?
