Platystemon californicus

Cream Cups.

We currently do not grow this plant.

A annual wildflower. In the past it was common in open fields and following fires. Now largely replaced with weedy annual grasses, starthistle, and mustard. Cream cups used to be included in wildflower seed mixes, but is a costly seed. Expect to pay dearly if you can find the seed at all.
