The one book I rely on is 'Poppies,the poppy family in the wild and in cultivation' revised edition, by Christopher Grey-Wilson. I'm sure there are many more out there, I just haven't looked for them. What do you use ?
Lotsa poppy comments on other forums which is appropriate too, but I suppose if we are to have a special poppy forum I'd best post here. It seems poppies don't grow everywhere Now that's a surprise as I thought they were universal. Here in the "Pungent Sound" they grow with great abandon and are by far my favorite yard decoration. (except for those darn blue poppies that hate me) With 280 photos of poppies in my iPhoto album it seems I'm hooked. The Orientals are scattered about in front and back yards now but I've harbored an idea of having one big area for them exclusively. Will this be the year ?
In any event lets hear about some of your 'poppying' adventures.
This picture is a"pom-pom" (silly name) type of somniferum.
