Big, BIG plant & thriving
Arizona Grower from AZ wrote on May 12, 2018

I started these indoors, but Poppies do not transplant well, so use Starter Peat Pots or plant them directly, but rake and sift the soil & keep it moist til they sprout. They will grow really slowly at first then all of a sudden shoot up and out! Wow- one day I had a spindly plant, next thing I had a "shrub" almost five feet high and two ft wide, with eight flower buds. Right now I'm awaiting for the buds to open, I can't wait to see what they look like! Thank you, Park Seeds the only poppy seeds I've bought that grew. I am in Arizona and the weather is terrible here, but this plant is doing great.

Started these indoors in peat pots and transplanted outside (in peat pots). These took quite some time but all of a sudden bolted to 3 feet and had BEAUTIFUL blooms. Time from seed to flower is about 120 days. Multicolor blooms from dark red to a medium purple. Needs very little tending and really added wow to my backyard.
