Companion for Dendromecon

jmw3025March 16, 2010

Read somewhere about a good CA native that goes well with Dendromecon hardifordii--I think it was a perennial shrub with red flowers. Now can't find the reference. Anybody have any suggestions? Ground cover around base of the poppy is Carex pansa.

Redbud? Red bush monkeyflower? Or if you were wrong about the flower color, Ceanothus - I've seen that one paired with Dendromecon often.
