Limnanthes douglasii is a species of annual flowering plant in the family Limnanthaceae (meadowfoam) commonly known as Douglas' meadowfoam or poached egg plant.
It is native to California and Oregon, where it grows in wet, grassy habitat, such as vernal pools and spring meadows. It can grow in poorly drained clay soils.
The plant bears white flowers with yellow centers, hence the name "poached egg plant".
It is a popular ornamental plant. It attracts hoverflies to the garden to eat the aphids and it is ne of the best plants for attracting beneficial insects.
It is self-seeding, and gardeners are often careful as to where the seeds fall as it will quite happily grow in a lawn.
These flowers prefer full sun and a cool moist root run and because of this do very well when grown as an edging to paths.
Approximately 80-100 seeds in 1g packet.
