I planted one of these in a bed that had strawberries. I had to leave my home for over a year and when I returned, the original plant had overwintered and there were many babies. I transplanted these all over the garden this spring and no matter where I planted them, they did great, even ones that were neglected, stepped on, and not watered! They were one of the first flowers in the garden to bloom. The deer left them alone until the fawns were born and then they began to eat the flowers. The dozen plants were more than they could keep up with and the browsing only made them bloom more! I can't believe how fast they bloom. Some of the babies did not have dark centers but were still a lovely creamy color instead of a bright yellow. I love them all. They are indestructible. The most beautiful combination in my flower garden area is Lauren's Dark Grape breadseed poppy with these creamy yellow calendula. Any dark plum or purple flower looks lovely with them. Almost deer proof!
