    Hi - I had this growing in my garden too and didn't know the name.  But thanks to the great help on this site I can proudly tell you that it is a Californian Poppy!!  

    Here is mine which incidentally is on its way out now - spent!!!

    It's Eschscholzia aka Californian poppy. I think there's a variety called "Orange King"  :)

    Oh that's great thanks so much everyone that was really bugging me! but I kept thinking  that they looked rather alot like poppies but didn't know they could come in orange!! @tuikowhai34 they look gorgeous where abouts in your garden are they, what I mean is how much sun etc do they need and are they easy to maintain/grow?

    Morning shade and then full sun from about 10am until about 6pm.   Yes, they are easy to grow and maintain and get a drink when I water the rest of the garden.  No big deal. Tui

    They self seed and although this great plant is dying, there are other smaller plants underneath to continue the line!

    They like quite poor soil and a sunny, well drained site, but they'll seed around and grow in lots of other places.

    I personally wouldn't buy plants from any seller, if they don't have the correct names to them though.   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    @Fairygirl ok well they would be planted in my new flower bed where there is plenty of sun so that's good! I totally get where your coming from but the seller is selling other plants which they do know the names of, which I also will be purchasing and there all pretty well established and looked after and large so I'm kinda cheating a bit with regards to growing bit!! Lol😁
