Limnanthes douglasii is commonly called 'meadowfoam', 'poached eggs', or 'fried egg'. It's native to wet meadows and other damp, sunny locations in California and southwestern Oregon. It produces a blanket of flowers in spring and can be coaxed into a longer bloom period when given supplemental water as the ground begins to dry out later in the spring. Plants grow 6"-12" tall and broad, with yellowish green, finely divided leaves and clusters of 1-inch wide flowers. Blossoms may be white or yellow but are most commonly yellow with white petal tips. Plants self-sow where adapted. You can purchase seed to sow in the fall from Thompson & Morgan (800-274-7333).
