Apart of Erica Catherine's US State Flower Collection, the California Poppy flower represents the State of California. The oranges flowers are shown on top of a blue color background.
The California Poppy was adopted as the state flower in 1816. A California icon, this flower is celebrated each year on April 6th across the state. The poppy was named in 1816 by a naturalist who sailed into sand Francisco bay and found the hills covered in flowers. It's believed that the bright gold and orange flowers are a symbol of the "fields of gold" that were sought during the gold rush era. You can find these flowers growing wild across the state, and valued not only for their beauty but also as a source of food and for the oil extracted from the plant. Alongside their iconic bright orange these poppies can also be seen in ivory, yellow, and an almost red shade. The flowers aren't a high producer of nectar but the local bee and insect populations will still flock to harvest the abundant pollen that they produce.
Inspired by the natural and antique details that call to Erica's Old soul, she aims to bring that special spirit to all of her designs. Each drawing is created by hand using a mixture of graphite drawing with watercolor layering over the top to create the ethereal and vintage inspired work that harks back to turn of the century botanical illustration.
