The California Poppy Mixed Colors, 'Eschscholzia californica', produces a stunning mix of white, yellow, orange, deep orange, scarlet-red, and purple poppies. The California Poppy Mixed Colors is a perennial that is usually grown as an annual. In zones 7-11, though, the foliage often overwinters.

On cloudy days or in the shade, the blooms will close. The Mixed Colors Poppy will grow in almost any soil that is well drained. Pinching off spent flowers increases the bloom period.
