Poppies put on a beautiful show in early summer - after the spring bulbs are done but before most of the summer garden is in bloom. Poppies are beautiful in groups and will bloom in early summer and then reseed each year on their own. The seed pods dry perfectly for use in dried crafts. Seeds were brought to the US by early settlers and grown in early gardens. Seeds should be planted in cold conditions - from November through late April.
