yellow flower in egypt
hi,,, i was wondering if u can help me in identifying the name of this flower please
Hi Nermin, this is one of my all time favorite little drought smart plants. It's the California poppy, or Eicholtzia, and in its natural habitat (in California) will form huge colonies of free flowering orange or yellow blooms. Whole hillsides will be covered in the flowers in June and July.
These reseed freely, providing the next generation. As annuals, they respond quickly to the perfect growing conditions - a good rain, followed by sunny warm weather will provide these. The flowers open in the daytime, and close at night and on cloudy days.
Best areas to grow them are on the edges of gravel driveways, which provide the perfect place for the seeds to germinate, among the rocks. They are also frequently grown on traffic circles, 'hell strips' alongside the roadway, and in any other challenging sites.
Get the seed pods just before they open up, and put them in a paper bag to finish ripening, and they can be scattered wherever you want to grow the plant - they don't transplant all that well, so see where the plant will grow.
Happy Native Plant Gardening!
