OTHER: Mikado is a California Poppy whose 2 tone flowers give it a very lovely shimmery effect. The petals are a deep orange on the inside with scarlet red on the underside that shows
through. The flowers only open when the sun is shining & get their beauty rest in the dark of night or on cloudy days, so you’ll get to see both sides. Poppies attract bees, butterflies, and
birds, but are deer resistant. The huge showy 2 - 4" blooms make for an excellent cut flower, and their unique looking seed pods are splendid in dried arrangements or for crafts.
California Poppies are able to tolerate poor soil, heat & drought, as well as coastal conditions. They can bloom in just 8 – 10 weeks from seed, & while they are perennial only in warmer climates, they will reseed themselves to give you new plants even in cooler climates. They are known in folk medicine as a mild sedative and analgesic. The California Poppy is a protected species, and there is a $500 per plant fine for destroying them!
