When we visited Eartheart we were entranced by the beauty of Sharon Whitney's gardens and growing fields of Japanese irises mixed with poppies. During the last 14 years we've visited many nurseries of many types of flowers and most seemed to be very unappealing rigid soldier straight lines so this was a rare treat.
I'd love to have an idea or an I.D. on these red poppies. Thank you.
Those are definitely P. somniferum. They volunteer in my garden . I will save seed for you next year if y ou wish. I do believe I have that particulart JL. My name may be wrong ( I never keeep track of names)...but I believe it is Pink Spritx or pink Dimity.
I understand that long winter feeling...My DW says my you are busy (going to the gym , walking Daisy, cleaning bathroom, taking out recyclables, buying a new computer chair and puttting it together , cleaning and sharpening pruners and planting more seeds). All I really want to do is get out there and get my hands in some dirt...
