(Papaver somniferum) Giant 4-5” flowers are fully double and bright salmon-pink in color with creamy frosted edges that make this variety simply stunning and magnificent in the garden. After flowering, it also produces unique seed pods that are popular in dried arrangements. An annual that really makes a bold statement with its richly-colored blooms.

What are the pros? Great for poor soil

What are the cons? none

Review:

Few species thrive in terrible Arizona soil and weather. Worthwhile flowers are even harder to grow here. I started to look for plants that grow in horrid climates. Poppies thrive in our poor soil, wind and temperature extremes. For those who want to grow this here is my advice: Poppies can't stand transplanting. The seed requires LIGHT to germinate. They are very, very slow going at first but will shoot up and out once they get growing. The blooms last one, two days tops & that's what all poppies do, so keep that in mind. I would plant small masses of them for effect. How I got them to germinate: cordon off an area you want your poppies to be. Put seed-starting mix/soil down, water that soil, press poppy seeds gently into wetted soil. I placed metal grating over the seeding area to prevent damage to seedlings from birds, animals, & keep soil in place. I kept a very, very weak water trickle in the same area, enough to keep area semi-moist but not wash away. They all grew.

What are the pros? Wonderful color, tall

What are the cons? Stems curl and twist

Review:

I finally got these to germinate after trying for a couple of years. The blooms are absolutely beautiful, but they only last 2-3 days before shedding their petals - making a mess of the rest of my garden. To add to my frustration, the top foot or so of the stem twists and curls, rendering these insufficient as cut flowers. My recommendation would be to purchase "pink seniorita" zinnias instead - very similar looking color and blooms (seriously!), with long duration, gorgeous blooms, straight stems, and much easier to germinate.
