matilija poppy

A much admired, spectacular, shrub-like perennial, with a long history in cultivation. Can be both finicky to get going and extremely vigorous once established. The large flowers are made up of crinkly, crape paper-like, white petals with a shaft of yellow stamens in the center, at the top of long, gray-foliaged stems. Plant where its size and spreading won't be a problem and prune severely in winter. Height 4 -7 feet. Full sun. Drought and deer tolerant.

We've heard mixed reports on Romneya's deer resistance. Deer have been known to eat it.
