Although an exhaustive study of the effect of wood type was not included, we did test smoke from pine "sawdust" on Emmenanthe and Romneya
and found that it was equally as effective as smoke from Adenostoma wood.
With huge, diaphanous white flowers atop 6- to 8-foot-tall stems, Romneya
coulteri is regal, indeed.
COULD you tell me who sells seeds or plants of romneya
? - Mrs H J Gregory, Cheshire.
During the dormant season many species such as Acanthus (Bear's Britches), Aesculus (Horse Chestnut), Aralia, Chaenomeles (Flowering Quince), Eryngium (Sea Holly), Papaver (Poppy), Romneya
(Californian Poppy) and Spiraea can be propagated by taking root cuttings.
Those with roots that spread just below the surface are also propagated in the same way, among the best of these, the Tree Poppy (Romneya
) and the Flame Flower (Tropaeolum speciosum).
IF you have not already done so, cut back buddleias - but not B globosa - also forsythia and the Californian poppy bush (Romneya

PRUNE hardy shrubs such as Fuchsia magellanica, Caryoptens clandonensis, Perovskia and Romneya
PRUNE back almost to the ground the top growth of hardy fuchsias which have been damaged by frost, as well as Californian Poppy Bush (Romneya
coulteri), willows grown for the colour of their young bark and the Dogwood (Cornus alba).
They include the Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus), Californian Poppy Bush (Romneya
coulteri), Japanese anemones, Ceanothus, the Giant Seakale (Crambe cordifolia), Ostrowskia, and the Drumstick Primula (P.
Here they planted native shrubs, including blue sage (Salvia clevelandii), Matilija poppy (Romneya
coulteri), and California fuchsia (Zauschneria).
Artemisia 'Powis Castle', fairy wand (Dierama pulcherrimum), lion's tail (Leonotis leonurus), Russian sage (Perovskia), Jerusalem sage (Phlomis fruticosa), Matilija poppy (Romneya

In early summer, Matilija poppies (Romneya
coulteri) bear spectacular 9-inch-wide, yellow-centered white flowers on stems towering to 8 feet.
At least 12 groups of people in the Westare, or could become, very fond of the Matilija poppy (Romneya
coulteri and its relatives).
