Campground Flowers

The sky was overcast this morning, so I took the opportunity to get some pictures of the flowers in the campground rain garden.

I believe this is a redhot poker (Kniphofia uvaria (L.) Oken. (PlantNet Plant Identification.)
I believe this is a nasturtium in the Tropaeolum family. (PlantNet Plant Identification.)
I believe this is an opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L.) (PlantNet Plant Identification.)
I think this might be a Dahlia. (Personal experience.)
I think this might be a California poppy (personal experience).

  1. Hello Linda, I agree with nasturtium (I grow them in winter in my plot in Lincolnville community garden) but I am not sure photo # 5 is a California poppy (Escholtzia). Maybe Calendula?? I really enjoy your blog. Take care. Annie

    • Thank you for the feedback! I think I remember where that plant is and will go check. The flower I photographed was not open so I will check the ones that are and see what I find. I will check it against calendula and let you know.

  2. I’m currently growing nasturtium in my garden. I heard they’re good at keeping pests away from tomato plants. 🙂 Thanks for sharing these beautiful flowers.

    • They are certainly beautiful. I wish I could grow them at my home in Florida but it is too hot for them so I have to enjoy them on the road.

      • I didn’t know they like cool weather. I read they need full sun when I planted them & I live in California where it gets to 100 F most day near the end of summer. Hopefully they pull through haha

      • I am going to have to try to grow them then. I haven’t seen them anywhere in my neighborhood but maybe I just to get the right cultivar. I just looked it up and there are many varieties. I hope yours does well and now I am motivated to plant some.
