Positive SabraKhan On Jun 1, 2011, SabraKhan from Tiverton, RI (Zone 6b) wrote:

Color of this poppy is a glowing red-ish orange that stands out when in bloom. Started mine from seed years ago and now the clump is good size with many buds. This cultivar is vigorous when established. I grow 4 other varieties of Oriental Poppy, but only 'Brilliant' thrives with vigor compared to the others that have more appealing bloom colors.

Planted this in June of 2010 from a nursery. The leaves emerged (as in picture), but then died down and never came back. I have no idea what happened to it. Hoping it will come back this year? I'm in zone 5.

Makes a nice show of flowers in May/June. My plant is about 4 years old and in not quite full sun. Leaves yellow and die back after flowering leaving a hole in the garden.

I've been told that with proper fertilizing and something else, (sorry can't remember what it is) it will flower again in the fall.
I believe it's in 'Lois Holes Perennial Plant Guide' that this information on reblooming can be found.
