Gardeners' Notes:

Positive ericabelle On May 31, 2010, ericabelle from West Plains, MO (Zone 6b) wrote:

I absolutely love this poppy! To me, all poppies are beautiful, but this one surpasses them all with the foliage. The foliage is almost sculptural, and it is a lovely silvery green color. Each of the flowers only last a few days, but the foliage gets comments from visitors to my garden season-long.
