Fringed Poppy

The annual poppies have bloomed longer this year than usual. They're making my gardens look GOOD. ;-)

What a pretty flower! I don't think I've ever seen a poppy like that.

Very nice. I've never had much luck with poppies, what's your secret?

Ex-S,
My secret? Poppi plant themselves. Really.

If you have seeds, plant them now where you want them to come up next year. They'll sprout next spring when the conditions are right.

OR plant them in April. In the spring they seem to like the constantly wet soil.
