California Poppy is a native California wildflower (and the official state flower), which also grows throughout the west coast of North America. Sometimes known as the flame flower, it is truly a plant of the sun, opening and closing in response to sunlight. It is said that the California Poppy helps the soul to gather its forces of light and warmth so that they can radiate within the heart.
Because they flourish in warm dry conditions, we’ve recently seen an increase in super-blooms, most notably in Southern California as a result of the wildfires that devastated many homes so much land. In support, 1% of sales from the California Poppy are being donated to the Wildfire Relief funds both in British Columbia and California.
