Thanks Skimper, I know they are Orientals and that they are perennials, I just don't remember who the cultivars are... :) Those tags are long since gone... Those poppies have been in that bed for probably 10 years...

Ticker...lovely pics of your poppies. I have some of the standard orange poppies that I would like to move. They are quite invasive and look like thistles when they are done blooming. I don't want to destroy them as they are beautiful when in bloom. Can I dig them up and transplant after they are finished blooming or should I wait until fall?

Thank you. I think you are supposed to wait till they go dormant, and then you can dig them and move them... I've been known to rip them out weeding in the spring if they are to invasive and my husband just picks them up and plants them and they grow for him. They would die for me if I actually cared if they lived or died... LOL
