At first I didn't care for the orange color of these poppies, but they have grown on me. This is ia very hardy poppy and can put up quite a few blooms. It also reblooms for me in the fall, which was a nice surprise.

This is a stunning poppy. When the sun streams through the blossoms it is so bright, it can't be ignored. The plant produced 18 blooms its second season and then quickly disappeared as the summer heated up so be sure to surround it with later blooming perennials. The orange contrasts beautifully with deep purple salvia.
