Eschscholzia californica

Description

The well-known Calfornia Poppy - the official State flower of California - is a beautiful annual with lovely blue-grey feathery foliage and flowers borne in profusion throughout the summer.

Harvesting seed

Wait until the seed pod turns brown on the plant and the stalks turn yellow. When openings appear below the crown of the pod cut the pods and place face down in a paper bag to dry for about 3 weeks.

Once dry, pick up the stems and tap onto the sides of a bowl to release the seeds.

Store in an airtight container.
