Two species of Dendromecon are widely accepted, though some botanists consider them to belong to just one species, only distinct at the lower rank of subspecies:
- A larger plant, occasionally becoming a small tree to 6 metres (20 ft) tall; leaves broad, less than three times as long as broad. Endemic to the Channel Islands of California.
- Dendromecon rigida - Bush Poppy.
- A smaller plant, rarely exceeding 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall; leaves narrow, more than three times as long as broad. Occurring on mainland California (Pacific Coast Ranges and Sierra Nevada foothills) and northern Baja California.
