Flower Identification: 1 correct images as above.
I am new to the group and would like to use the members’ knowledge to help me in identifying some of the pictures of flowers I took on my recent trip to Sikkim. I have tried to use the website www.flowersofindia.net to identify the flowers by searching them by their colours but I have made little headway even after a week of scouring its very helpful index. I would be happy if the people here can help me identify some of the flowers in the pics I’ll be posting here. I have attached some of them, there will be more to follow.
First……………Californian poppy, Eschscholzia californica
Second………Dandlion, Taraxacum officinale.
Third……………Add photograph with leaves
Fourth………….Amaryllis lily, Hippeastrum sp
the fourth picture is Azlaea (Rhododendron sp.) I think.
it could be Azalea… one would need to see leaves for azalea and the stalk if its the Amaryllis lily…
California poppy (Eschscholzia californica):
Yes .. Found it very common in our apartment area
Yes, your pictures are of the native california poppy…
many cultivars exist… many colors…mostly pink-yellow family pastels….
and many variations in thickness/ delicacy of the petals…
mostly grown by design… but some escape, and can be found…
do not know if the pastel colors have naturalized, at least in california?
California Poppy for Bot. id- 160711 – RK:
Very good capture. It is difficult to catch those colours in camera.
The colors vary from white till dark yellow.
– Yes, this is supposed to be highly medicinal.
– Common garden plant in Spring
– The two plant whose spellings are often confused:
Swamy/New series/ID 1 – Eschscholzia californica ( California poppy ): 4 images.

Eschscholzia californica from California-GS27022023-1: 5 very high res. images.

J&K, Srinagar, April 2023 :: Eschscholzia californica :: ARK2023-031: 2 high res. images.
These beautiful flowers were seen at the Shalimar Bagh in Srinagar, J&K in April 2023.
I think they are Eschscholzia californica. Kindly validate.
For me your ID looks correct !
I photographed this plant long ago some where in San Diego, California during one of my visits. I could not trace the photo from my archives.
Interesting that plant which is so meticulously planted in Kashmir and elsewhere grows wild covering mountain slopes here in California.
