Do poppies rebloom? This is not one of my basic red orange ones, but a lighter orange that popped up out of nowhere a few years back. I don't remember if it bloomed this spring or not.
Poppy blooming now - August 13
Whether this is unusual or not for your area depends on what kind of poppy it is. Various perennial and biennial poppies bloom throughout the summer here. Do you know what kind of poppy you have?
Has it gone dormant, then regrown and bloomed? I've had that happen.
Otherwise, strange things happen sometimes that cause plants to be thrown off the normal cycle... who knows why?
It has been reported that the "super poppies" rebloom. So far it has not happened here. http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/sep/02/plant-of-week-super-poppy-medallion
I have Heartbeat, Jacinth and Shasta in that series. Maybe next year??? I haven't seen anything in regards to rebloom zone to narrow it down. Greenhouse rebloom????
