Negative otter47 On Apr 28, 2010, otter47 from Livermore, CA wrote:

The name of this cultivar has been typographically confused between Livermere (in England) and Livermore. I have tried it and it does not thrive here in Livermore California. My attempts of growing Oriental Poppies -- that are so spectacular in climates with cold winters --have not been successful. My plants were weak and the flowers that did form bloomed within the foliage mass, not on stately stems as shown in the photos. My plants lived for a couple of years and then departed. Maybe someone on the site knows how to grow these lovely plants in climates with mild winters.
