    Eschscholzia californica 'Carmine King' - Carmine King California Poppy (Seed)

    This carmine-colored poppy takes the same conditions as the familiar orange poppy--very little water and lots of sun. Transplants require careful handling--roots are sensitive--and supplemental water for 2-4 weeks after planting.
