Matilija Poppy

Not much new in my garden this week, so I thought I’d share a few photographs from the archives.

This beautiful plant caught my eye at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum last year.

It looks a bit like a common plant found in Arizona called the prickly poppy, but the flowers are bigger and bolder.


These are Coulter’s Matilija poppies, Romneya coulteri. It is from California.

I guess these are what put the “pop” in eye-popping.
