Positive Weezingreens On Nov 4, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Shirley poppies were developed in England in the late 1800's when Reverend Wilks of Shirley selectively pollinated species rhoeas poppies and came up with single rhoeas with a white edging. Since then, doubles have been developed, and though not all Shirley's have the white edging, they are certainly beautiful.
