I'd be grateful to anyone who can help me to identify the plant in the attached photo. I thought that this plant might be eriogonum but have decided it's not. I'm wondering if you can help identify it? The flowers are a little more orange than the red that they appear to be in the photo. I believe that it is a drought tolerant plant, or at least am hoping so.

Thanks very much!

Welcome to the site!

Looks like California poppy.

Thanks crawgarden for your quick reply. The flower does somewhat resemble the California Poppy but the foliage is different from the poppies that I know. The flower also stands about 5" above a more matted foliage. Perhaps there is a different kind of poppy that I'm not familiar with. I will look into this.

Many thanks!

Not a poppy at all, let me go through my photos to find the correct name, I'm drawing a blank.

Helianthemum. Many named cultivars.

Well I have too many photos, I thought perhaps Geum or Cistus but foliage is wrong. I moved it over to the Plant ID forum for help.

There we are!! And we would rather show off photos in our database than send folks elsewhere.

Calif_Sue I think that you may have found it. Here are a few better pictures I just found. I think it look like the photo in your database. Do you agree? The flowers kind of hover over a mound of foliage.

Many thanks!

It was @Silversurfer that came up with the correct name, I only supplied the database link in agreement. Thumbs up
