California Poppy Thai Silk Appleblossom Chiffon
California Poppy 'Thai Silk Appleblossom Chiffon'
We’ve dubbed this exquisite ruffled bloomer the poor man’s rose. Glaucous, lacy foliage reveals a profusion of crimped creamy rose petals lightly brushed with cranberry. Similar in coloring to 'Distant Drums' roses, this palette is perfect for wedding work. Versatile, drought tolerant plants are easy to grow, bloom all summer long, and are well suited for small spaces and the front of the border.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75 days

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Can be direct seeded.
Harvest when flowers are in colored bud stage. Individual flowers don’t last long, only 3-4 days, but as they fade and drop petals, the new buds on the stem pop open, giving you at least a week’s worth of flowers.
