Hunnemannia fumariifolia

Hunnemannia fumariifolia
An absolutely exquisite plant from Mexico - related to the Californian poppies but upright in habit and with flowers of the loveliest fresh lemon yellow and complemented by finely divided and intensely glaucous foliage.
Hunnemannia fumariifolia
This species is usually described as a half-hardy annual but is in fact a perennial and the parent of these seedlings has been on the xeric bed at the nursery for a couple of years now, on an extremely well-drained soil in full sun, protected from winter wet.
1L pots ~ £7
