This is the most basic of all questions, but since this is my first go at poppies I guess it's legitimate. I sowed a pkg. of what was simply labeled "annual poppy." My question is regarding dead-heading and rebloom. Will they? Should I? Are they spent after the original bloom or will they keep coming?

Thanks...

(Thank Goodness for those of you with patience for those like me). LOL

They will bloom once. If you 'deadhead' you would remove the seed capsule and eliminate any chances of them re-seeding for next year. My suggestion would be to just leave them to their own devices, let them bloom, enjoy them, then when the seed heads are dry sprinkle the seeds around and hopefully enjoy a bigger crop next year. Most , but not all, of the poppies are annuals. Hope this helps.
