detailed seed-starting info below

Small poppy suitable for rock gardens. Not long-lived - regrow from seed regularly. Ours bloomed in late August from seed started indoors in winter (I didn't quite catch the show on camera – I was hoping for a repeat the next year, but unfortunately the plants did not return. I did grow new ones, and I hope to pay closer attention this year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
