ESCHSCHOLZIA californica 'White Linen' (California Poppy, White - White Linen), a well-known flowering plant native to the western parts of North America. It is popular for its vibrant flowers and delicate foliage. 'White Linen' is a specific variety of California Poppy that produces white flowers instead of the typical orange or yellow ones.
'White Linen' typically grows to a height of 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 centimeters). It has feathery, bluish-green foliage and produces numerous white flowers that resemble single-petaled poppies. The flowers have four petals and a distinctive yellow or orange center. This variety blooms from late spring to early summer, typically from April to June. The flowers attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
California Poppies, including the 'White Linen' variety, prefer well-drained, sandy or loamy soils and full sun. They are commonly found in meadows, grasslands, and along roadsides in their native range. In cultivation, they are suitable for wildflower gardens, rock gardens, and as ornamental plants in flower beds or borders. They are drought-tolerant and self-sow readily.
'White Linen' is valued for its elegant and serene white flowers. It can be used to create contrast in the garden or to achieve a more subtle color palette. It pairs well with other spring and summer flowering plants and is a favorite choice for cottage gardens and naturalistic landscapes.
