California Poppy Day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 6

Fields of California poppies are known in California and elsewhere as "fields of gold. Today is a day set aside to honor these beautiful flowers and wildflowers. 

California poppies are native to the western coast of North America, from southern Canada, southward into Mexico. They grow wild, sometimes covering huge fields in a sea of gold, when in bloom.

In the late 1800's, Californians were working toward making the California Poppy their state flower. It did not happen until March 2, 1903. And, it wasn't until more than a century later, that California Poppy Day was created. 

Celebrate California Poppy Day by planting some of these poppies in your flower garden, enjoying pictures and information about them, or holding teaching sessions and talks to children or groups.
