What are the pros? Performed amazing
What are the cons? Wish they were perennials!
I was really excited to try these, though doubtful I would be able to grow them as I’ve failed at most other poppies. As the season went along, I got behind and, since it was getting late and I still hadn’t built the bed I was hoping to plant them in, I ended up just mounding some compost and topsoil on a brown paper bag over the pavement and planting in that, hoping for the best. Then the kids ran over it while playing, and I gave up on the idea of them surviving at all. I eventually built the bed around them. They grew wonderfully and are absolutely gorgeous! They look like something you would see in an expensive bouquet from a magazine! The petals almost look like velvet. There are tons of blooms, despite the little attention I gave them. These will definitely be a part of my garden each year! Next time, I plan to plant even more so I can trade with some of the many people who’ve asked me to do so because they love them as well!
