Poached Egg Flower

Flower
Family Limnanthaceae
Name Limnanthes douglasii
Common Names Poached Egg Flower, Meadowfoam
Featured Plant January 2007

  See also:  Ornamentals

This annual is ideal for filling in space or as a general ground cover. In the wild, it grows in boggy ground and can be used near water. Flower production is triggered by heat / drought conditions in late Spring, and in a matter of days, the plant will be smothered. Flowering continues on through Summer. The flowers are white with a dark yellow centre, and hence the common name.
