Meadowfoam, Poached Eggs
This low annual produces a blanket of yellow-and-white flowers on wet meadows in California and southwestern Oregon in spring. Can be coaxed into a longer bloom with regular watering. Grows to 6–12 in. high and broad, with yellowish green, finely divided leaves and clusters of inch-wide yellow flowers with white petal tips. L. d. sulphurea, sometimes called Point Reyes meadowfoam, is a coastal subspecies with pure yellow blooms. Flowers of L. d. nivea are almost entirely white. Sow seeds in fall or earliest spring. Plants self-sow where adapted.
