Matillija Poppy

Genus: Romneya

The very large plants produce stunning flowers but they do not work well for gardens with space constraints. Matillijas produce the largest flowers of any poppy. Blossoms be six inches in width or even larger. Blooms appear in early summer and have a crepe paper appearance. It can take some effort to establish matillija poppies. Once the plants take hold they can extend via underground roots. This characteristic can make matillija poppies a good choice for hillside erosion control.
