Gardeners' Notes:

Positive jody03 On Jan 14, 2011, jody03 from Iowa City, IA wrote:

This is a beautiful plant, but here in southeastern Iowa it's generally too hot for it to flourish. I've discovered a couple of little places (microclimates) in my garden where they'll grow and reseed from year to year, but it's a chancy thing. Here they need shade during the hottest part of the day, and well-drained soil. The reseeded plants aren't the same color as their parents.

I bought this plant on a whim and it is now my very favorite. It hasn't quit blooming since I got it. It's blooms are orange, peach, yellow and cream. My very favorite, though, are the ones that are bright yellow with orange along the edges of the petals. I haven't taken any special care of it. I just water it regularly and remove the spent blooms.

Positive croclover On Jun 23, 2006, croclover from Lake Forest, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

This poppy loves full sun but not extreme heat. Moderate water and well drained soil, along with frequent deadheading will ensure vigorous, showy blooms in creamy white, salmon, coral, and oranges blooming from January through late April in Zone 10a. Plant will begin to slow down as summer temperatures rise. Leave last burst of blooms on their stalks to set seed to sow in Fall. Despite it's delicate appearance it is quite resistant to pests and disease. Remove dead leaves from base of plant as needed. Transplants easily.
