Has anyone seen one with foliage like this. I weed so many of these out because they are two prolific here but I leave those with more intense or unusual color or like this one that just looks very different. Wasn't sure what it was until it bloomed last year and now it is back and the foliage looks the same. Very different. I tried the wildflower forum but no one is home. Any thoughts? I tip my hat to you.

California poppy or a hybrid of it .. I think! The leaves don't quite match, they usually have a terrible stink.

I can see a seed pod to the bottom left of the flower, it looks to match those of Eschscholzia californica.

Eschscholzia californica 'Golden West' ..?

Yes it is and it should be perennial in your area. When the ones you like start to die back, cut them down. They will resprout again this season and be back next year too.

I'm overly familiar with California Poppy. I weed most of them out by the thousands every year. A problematic weed in this situation for the most part. I keep the reds the whites the coper tones or anything interesting like this one. The foliage is very very different. This one is back from last year so it is perennial so it's not E. caespitosa. It does have the orange hearts described about E. 'Golden West' but that one has typical foliage. This one may fall within the natural variation, the far sides of a bell curve, that any species has but I was hoping it was recognizable by it's strange leaves to someone out there as a species perhaps or it may be a hybrid too as Janet perposed. Thanks for checking this out. There is a plant next to it with the usual foliage so I'll add a picture of both in one shot so you can see how different they are. Thank you everyone. I tip my hat to you.

It looks exactly like the Eschscholzia caespitosa that I used to have and it was a perennial. I bought the seeds because I saw it growing at an educational farm here in Texas. The blooms on my plants were deeper orange and the foliage was more lush
This is where I bought the seeds

I see that they sell it at Annie's Annuals and Perennials and were going shopping there tomorrow. I can take some with and compare and they may be able to help depending on whose there. Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

The foliage on Eschscholzia caespitosa doesn't look the same as this plant.

Look at calphotos ..

It appears the foliage can vary, the clue is more likely in the 'collar' as Eschscholzia caespitosa is 'collarless'

Just back from Annie's Annuals and Perennials. An eye popping selection. So much fun to go. I took a flower and some foliage and it was interesting and very unusual but it is an Eschoscholzia californica. I left the sample with them and may get future feedback. I looked through there many poppies including E. caespitosa which does have wispy foliage but is much smaller in stature, yellow flowered and annual. I include here a photo of it and a normally foliaged one next to it an some of the others here. Oh and I have to throw in one from Annie's.

Glad you solved it!
So I guess I have that also, even though my flowers weren't small
