Does anyone grow these? I have tried them before; I don't think they did that well for me. My sister had little seedlings coming up everywhere. She lets them grow some places and gets rid of them where she doesn't need them. But she lives in N. CA. It made me wonder if I should try them again. Hers are the common orange. I know they come in colors but are those easy to grow? I was looking for seeds in my seed box and got out the other kinds of poppies; mine looked ratty last year. I think I planted them too thick which is easy to do and they may be better here and there instead of one big ratty area. I like the look of the blue o poppy foliage before it blooms, but after it blooms the foliage gets very ratty. Some rot. I know I will try again since I am already in the mood. It is cold in the morning but these sunny cool afternoons are great for digging. I really can't stand the heat. This is good digging weather. I need to wash my windows so I need excuses to do anything else.
