Pollinator Power Plant for November 2016

on

Eschscholzia californica , California Poppy is our choice for Pollinator Power Plant for November 2016.   Not because poppies actually should be growing or blooming right now, but because NOW is the time to sow seed for poppies next year.  Sow seed directly, mixed in soil and sand and expect a sea of lime-green foliage and golden orange flowers next spring or earlier.  Watch as big black bumble bees roll up and down the stamens, sometimes turning over on their backs to get the pollen goodness!
