California poppies (Eschscholzia californica) is a species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae family, native to the United States and Mexico.
Every spring (now around February instead of March/ April) these gorgeous flowers appear in many Los Angeles gardens including mine. Heck, you see them sprinkled by the freeways, sidewalks, etc. This year I didn't get a chance to weed and though the garden was littered with poppy plants, many of them had to compete with other plants for resources. Not a lot ended up blooming. But those that did were luscious in orange hue. I hope you get a chance to see them in person.
