Pretty picture: Eschscholzia californica 'Orange King'

This isn't a current picture; I took it in May. We haven't had these since slightly after May, because we didn't have many to begin with, once they got flowers they sold pretty quickly, and a few of them got too wet and died. So I have no idea how they actually do in Iowa, but my impression is that they need slightly drier conditions than catastrophic flooding.

I think they do prefer drier conditions. I've grown them as annuals in my garden, they are gorgeous!
