A few years ago, I planted a mantilija poppy out in the front of the house. If you're familiar with this spectacular plant, you'll know that if the mantilija likes where you've planted it, pretty soon you'll have LOTS of little mantilijas arriving via root runners. Then you're in for a show when the dessert plate-sized papery white blossoms all burst out in bloom. Beautiful. And the bees love 'em. Here's the first flower to show up, so far. As you can see, there's other buds waiting in the wings.
