peony flowering poppies question

Birmingham, IA(Zone 5a)

I would love to have some peony flowering poppies, but don't know a thing about poppies. Do they start from seed and are they perennial or do they reseed in Zone 5? Any info will be appreciated. Ruth

Hello:Ruth the peony poppies are annual poppies and the seeds can be started direct sowed in the late fall.after blooming the can reseed themselves.They need cold weather in order to germinate this spring.

Thanks skimper, I'll be looking for seed for this fall. Ruth

I love peony poppies! However, they seem to bloom here during our rainiest (?) time in the late spring. That means the petals end up in a clump and don't do well. The singles seem to do better here.
