Matilija Poppy



The bluish-green (glaucous) foliage consists of opposite, deeply lobed leaves. The leaf texture is leathery, as you would expect of a drought-loving plant, but the leaves are not hairy like some other members of the poppy family.


This California native wildflower is perfect for the dry, rocky, sun-baked west- or south-facing territory that is so difficult to make presentable.
