I grew these in an annual bed, in my absence, so was unable to weed t he bed. In competition with the weeds, they grew to four feet tall!
Lovely colours, delicate and tough at the same time...

'Angels' Choir' is a delightful mix of double poppies similar to 'Cedric Morris', but the color range is more intense. A bed of these poppies will remind you of can can dancers doing their high kicks! I found the habit to be a bit messy when unsupported, so I fenced mine in. I would think they would be sufficiantly supported by other plants when broadcast in a bed.
