1) I love these light pink beauties but they are such impolite neighbors, flopping all over and falling down on their neighbors. I have very rich soil and im thinking that this is the problem. Any suggestions?

2) also some of my flanders poppies are looking funky with the foliage turning whitish withe purple edges. i think it might be because it planted next to the supper acidic blueberry bed or maybe chlorotic from all the rain we've had this year.

3) oriental poppies have no stems this year. Should i pull them or se what happens next year?

Probably the rich soil is making them flop along with the rain.

So they won't flop if I put them somewhere a little rougher?

Wait on the Orientals short stems. Sometimes they take awhile to get there.
Unless they are blooming already,in which case I have no advise.

Im wondering if the stems will be longer next year even if they have the same amount of chill or if they are just going to get shorter and shorter.

I doubt the stems will get shorter.

Give them a year to become established.
Oriental poppy plants may disappear when hot weather comes,but they come back when the fall weather comes.
