What a lovely poppy! does this give large seedpods? I am new to this forum and a new(ish) gardener. I plan a poppy bed this year and would love a few seeds from this plant. Dmail me if you are interested, I'll pay postage and would have a few seeds to offer you in trade if you like. Thanks!
Hi, Seedsower! How did the orange somniferum do this year? I haven't seen anything like it either. The way it shows a touch of magenta at the petal bases in your picture reminds me of orange Anagallis, the scarlet pimpernel. (I have a blue Anagallis that shows the same touch of magenta; the combination of a reddish center with true cobalt petals is striking.)
