Plant Type: Perennials

Their graceful, wiry flower stalks topped with brightly colored, silky flowers brighten up even the coldest winter or spring day. Fragrant blooms on these easy-to-grow plants reach 2 to 4 inches wide. They bloom in summer the first year from seed sown in autumn or early spring. When grown as perennials, let soil dry out as they go dormant in late summer. Plants need excellent winter drainage. Excellent cut flowers if done before flowers open and ends of stems are seared with flame. Easy from seed. Deadhead spent flowers to lengthen bloom. Easier to transplant when dormant than other types of poppies, still can be difficult to re-establish.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer.
