Positive poppysue On Jan 19, 2003, poppysue from Westbrook, ME (Zone 5a) wrote:

This a cheery little poppy from southern Spain where it grows wild in crevices of the limestone cliffs. It's easily grown from seed and blooms throughout the summer bearing orange, 2-inch blooms with delicate, crimped petals. Self sown seedlings can be dug and moved while small but the larger plants resent transplanting and root disturbance.
