The scientific name of the California poppy is “Eschscholtzia californica” but trades in diverse names; in Spanish it is known as the “copa de oro” while its common street name is the flame flower or the Golden flower. It is regarded as the state flower of California mainly because it grows mostly on the western coast of U.S.A including Oregon and Washington. The flame flower plant is a distant relative to the opium poppy but it is legal to cultivate and pluck it in the state contrary to the opium. Its medicinal properties were first documented by the Indian tribes in California. In the latter-day, the plant is highly appreciated to the extent of being celebrated in California on special days (April 6) of every year.
