Erythronium 'Pagoda'

(fawn lily)

This delightful woodland bulb offers soft yellow, lily flowers in early spring, held on delicate stems up to a foot high above broad, speckled leaves. The charming flowers point gently downwards with stamens protruding from the reflexed petals. Creates a beautiful accent in the shade garden where it can form small drifts overtime, mingling with ferns, bleeding hearts and fringecups. The leaves emerge in late winter when the soil is moist and disappear shortly after flowering. Needs well-draining soil with a little organic matter and only occasional irrigation after it goes dormant in summer. A cross between 2 rare native fawn lilies: E. tuolumnense and E. revolutum.

Eschscholzia lobbii - Sundew

(frying pans poppy)

This endemic, ANNUAL poppy is more diminutive than the typical big, orange, well known California poppy. Native to inland sites in the Central Valley and Sierra Nevada foothills, where it grows in full sun with good drainage. This floriferous little gem sports smaller, cup-shaped flowers of the most lovely, soft shade of buttery-yellow, atop gray-green, finely cut foliage to about 6 inches tall. Wonderful addition to dry garden plantings, rock gardens, in openings amongst shrubs, perennials or other annuals, or in containers. May reseed if happy. The pollen attracts all sorts of pollinators and is deer and rabbit resistant.
