When happy, this plant can spread to huge stands by underground runners.
Give it lots of sun, excellent drainage on poor soils and plenty of room to grow.
Most plants grow to about six feet tall and can spread widely.
The Matilija poppy has a soft, green-colored foliage with a bluish hue.
It can be fussy about where it wants to grow and is intolerant of root disturbance.
