Poppies are Blooming!

I still get more excited about the poppies than any other flowers. You never know where or what you will get. I started with just two, both somniferums, Lauren's Grape and one just called Double Pink. Here is what I have so far.

This looks more like the original Lauren's Grape:

I am sorry I used this size, I should have done much smaller. I hope it doesn't take too long to load.

So beautiful. Thank you --

RE: Poppies are Blooming!

Very pretty!
My neighbor has one a lot like your frilly one in the middle. I love those! She offered to dig some up for me but I asked her to save me some seeds instead. I was afraid they wouldn't transplant well.

RE: Poppies are Blooming!

Christie, if there are any other poppies in the area, there is no guarantee what yours will be next year! That is what is so much fun.

I can save seeds for anyone who wants them. Just let me know.

RE: Poppies are Blooming!

I have the salmon fringed one and the single salmon color. I have seed for Lauren's Grape but never got it planted. I love poppies too. The big pinkish lavendar one is especially nice. They are so brief in their bloom but the seed pods are interesting too. The blue early foliage is nice but from now on they will get ratty. That is a cottage garden. Pruned and orderly is not my style.

RE: Poppies are Blooming!

Sigh. Those are so gorgeous! I adore poppies and really should grow some one of these days.
