None of these guys came up. Planted along a south-facing fence. Maybe they're just late bloomers.
Jennifer Bolger from CO
Owner Response: Hi Jennifer, These poppies bloom in spring and summer and do need cool soil (50-60 degrees F) to germinate. Also, a part sun area, ideally one with afternoon shade would be ideal. I hope that helps. Happy gardening!

In 2019, I direct sowed these seeds in November in zone 7b/8a with at least 6 hours of direct sun. I covered the seeds with a light frost cloth when it got in the 20's or lower for a few days. All of these seeds germinated and produced beautiful, hardy plants. I threw some seed out in November 2020 and already see plenty of sprouts. A great addition to any garden! The only thing I didn't care for is the scent. It is sweet but slightly medicinal.
