Fall Poppies  

fall planted poppiesshop all poppies

Poppies have been a staple in the early summer garden due to the large flowers of bright and bold colors. The ruffled petals almost appear to be made of crepe paper and instill happiness in the heart of any passer-by. This plant's foliage, which goes dormant and disappears after the blooms have faded, has an interesting, almost rough texture to it. Annuals can be used during this dormancy period to fill in empty pockets. Leaves will then reappear during the fall season and should not be removed prior to winter. Poppies require little maintenance but do not do well in extremely hot weather or clay soils. Root stock should be planted 15-18" apart and no more than 3" below the soil's surface.
