I am not sure what we have is Rose Chiffon. It is meant to have semi-double pink blossoms with a certain amount of variegation. Ours are just a magenta single with a yellow throat. The strain is seed grown, so we may just have gotten unlucky. Still, California poppy’s are a good colorful infill for any garden.
The foliage is fern-like and does need trimming back to keep the plant from becoming leggy. About 12″ high and perhaps 18″ wide. Self sows and we will have to see what the progeny look like.
