Caring for California Poppies

Like most native wildflowers, California poppies are easy to care for and maintain. The key is providing them with growing conditions that mimic their native habitat. For this plant, it's more about what you don't give California poppies than what you do give them. Less is more: less water, less soil nutrition, and less warmth. Don't coddle your California poppies, and you'll have the pleasure of watching them self-sow and pop up in the most unexpected places for many growing seasons to come.

Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)

Coneflower attracts butterflies, nourishes bees and wild birds, self-seeds in a non-aggressive way, and grows in sun or partial shade. Is there anything this versatile plant cannot do? The many new varieties of coneflowers on the market make it a designer's delight. Coneflowers bloom longer than many other perennial plants, making them an excellent choice for perennial gardens. Tolerates heat and drought conditions quite well.
