Romneya

Does anyone here grow Romneya?
If so, what sort of conditions does it do best in? I have one plant and I must have it in the wrong positon because it's not thriving. I put it in an east facing position where if get a some morning sun but I suspect I should have put it in a hot, hard, hungry spot.

Matilija poppy (Romneya) actually grows wild near where I live. It is a drought-tolerant plant that prefers full sun, little water, and poor soil. If given too much care, it will die. If given a little extra water and a trace of fertilizer, it can become invasive.
See Romneya in Wikipedia.

Thank you David. I'd be delighted if mine even looked like being mildly invasive. I'll move it this spring.
