These poppies are so easy to grow! I was dubious, as some poppy seeds are fussy about germinating, but note these! I just raked them into the soil in the fall, and they came up with a vengeance in the spring! Lots os flowers for my honeybees, pretty grey pollen, silky smooth purple blooms. Reseeds easily, to boot!
