CALIFORNIA STATE FLOWER

The California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) is in full bloom now throughout the Santa Cruz area. I've seeded many areas of parks and medians with seeds over the years and each Spring the size and number increases. They are beautiful and illegal to pick. It also makes for some difficulty doing landscape maintenance because you can't mow them or do anything that would adversely impact them.
