I planted this way back in 2000 and I loved it and lost it in 2008.. It was such a vibrant red poppy and it did grow pretty tall so you could really see it.. I had it mixed in with the yellow/red Monsella tulip ane the yellow Monti Carlo so the really off set each other.. I am reclaiming the flower bed they were once in and the dogs will just have to find a new place to run up and down and since I know they grew well in my yard back then they will do well again!
