This looks like a poppy that I have in my garden. I dug it out of an old garden in Port Hope...it took me two tries to get it to successfully transplant.I now have a largish patch that I have to control with the shovel, both spring and fall.It just keeps spreading outward and I have run out of neighbours who want it. It is pretty surly about being transplanted, (as most poppies are)As the patch is currently about a foot and a half square, I can undoubtedly provide some seeds as well. newine

Newine, I am sure it is the same. It took me several years to find out what it was. It is an heirloom, and its preferred method of propogation is by underground runners. For that reason, it does not transplant well, nor does it produce many plants from seed. My clump, which is about 2 ft X 1 foot was grown from one plant someone was discarding in her spring clean-up. She told me it would not transplant, but I took it home, put it in a pot and it survived the winter. After a few years, I was elated to see what the bloom was like. Mine has spread, but is not invasive in my Zone 5 garden. I have had it about ten years! I wintersowed some a few years ago - got about 5 plants and have a small clump forming. They don't seem to be spreading and have not yet bloomed. I do not usually like orange flowers, but I love this poppy because it wakes the garden up in the Spring and I can see them waving in the wind from my kitchen window.

It has just occurred to me that my patch is over 15 years old.It would, therefore have a pretty well established root system.Normally, if anybody wants to try it, I dig out a piece,stick it is a pot with sufficient soil to cover the roots and my husband drives it right over to its new garden home.However, this year I will try to pot up some of the outermost travellers and see if they survive. If they seem to be doing okay, I will take them to the Barrie plant swap. newine
