What Houzz contributors are saying:

Instead of striving for a meadow effect (which can look kind of shabby-dead after bloom), scatter wildflowers as highlights in a natural-looking landscape, as shown here. Combine wildflowers with native shrubs such as ceanothus or with sun-loving perennials such as lavender and salvia. An excellent source of wildflower information as well as seeds is Larner Seeds of Bolinas, California.

How to grow it. In cold climates sow seeds or set out seedlings in spring. In California and similar mild climates, sow seeds in fall and hope that winter rains see them through. First cultivate the planting bed, or at least scuff the planting area with a rough rake. Broadcast seeds and cover them with mulch or loose soil. Sprinkle the soil with water and keep it moist until the rains take over. After bloom, pull or hoe out dry plants — unless you want the poppies to naturalize and come back next year. Their seeds may come back if conditions suit them; pull or hoe out emerging seedlings if you don't want them.
