Romneya coulteri full sun  partial shade

This lusty California lady serves up a generous portion of large, crepe-paperlike white flowers with showy yellow stamens, sunny-side up style. Wondrous lightly scented, 9 in. wide blooms festoon the upper reaches of stout, glabrous stems cloaked in irregularly lobed gray-green leaves. A shrubby, tough-as-nails perennial that spreads by vigorous rhizomes, the Matilija Poppy’s native haunts include southern California’s Coastal ranges and valleys, and in cultivation, wide beds, hillsides or other formidable sites suit her just fine.

Undaunted by deer, poor soil and summer drought, she needs a lot of space, well drained soil, minimal root disturbance and an annual autumn cut back.

Romneya coulteri does not like to have its roots disturbed. Transplant it very carefully into a larger container, like a gallon pot, before planting in the garden. Make sure you select a sunny, well-drained spot. Do not overwater.

Since this stalwart plant is somewhat difficult to establish, we cannot guarantee its success after you have received it.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 4' 0" & spreading; hardy to zone 7.
