This plant is a friend to bees, butterflies, and birds. It often self-seeds from one year to the next.
Very easy to cultivate, it readily self-sows to thrive again the following year. The poppy is one species of poppy among many, and this variety does not contain opium.
As soon as the soil is workable in spring, sow your poppy seeds just below the surface (1/4’’). Keep the soil moist until germination, which should occur within 10 to 15 days. The plants do not appreciate being transplanted; if you do so, the plants may wither and die. Once the plants are mature, they tolerate drought well but appreciate water during dry periods.
