Key characteristics

Herbaceous plants and shrubs; leaves alternate on the stem, either simple or divided; without stipules at the base of the leaf-stalk. The flower-stalks are generally long, bearing flowers singly; the calyx is composed of only two or three sepals, which fall off when the flower expands; the petals are usually four, sometimes six,—in Bocconia they are wanting. In the bud state the petals are usually crumpled. Stamens numerous, attached to the base of the pistil, the style of which is short; stigmas, either two or many, forming a rayed star on the top of the ovary. The seed-vessel is either a capsule as in the Poppy, or long and pod-shaped as in Glaucium, the Horn Poppy, containing numerous seeds of a fleshy, oily nature.

from the Natural Order of Plants (1868)

Great podcast. I was listening to it on my I-pod while pruning our roses in Pasadena. I look forward to learning more about California gardening. The tips are useful and timely. I highly recommend subscribing to this podcast.

I look forward to each edition of this casual and pleasant monologue about gardens and garden wildlife in Southern California. Thanks, Douglass, for sharing your thoughts, experiences, and pictures. Well done.
