Sunny side up, anyone?

Ladies and Gents,

Meet the Romneya trichocalyx - the Hairy Matilija (ma-ti-li-hah) poppy (a.k.a. the sunny side up flower, fried egg flower, etc).
It's a sexy dicot that is native to California.  Flowers're huge! (four to eight inches across)
This plant is appreciated by its beautiful bloom and medicinal value.
Those living close by, do stop by our BioTrek Ethnobotany garden to bask in all its glory!
