detailed seed-starting info below

When we tried this a few years ago, the first-year seedlings bloomed in June, but did not return for a second year. They are supposedly scented, but I didn't notice. The white flowers are dainty, held high on whispy stalks. Not the kind of poppy that blows you away, but nice enough.

The foliage rosette looks similar to many other small perennial poppies
Papaver amurense

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
