Shirley Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?KHJSV 2 June 2008 Shirley Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)

This is the first bloom of the Shirley Poppy for 2008. There are many throughout the garden, and they self seed over-winter. One plant will produce about 100 blooms if it is not crowded. I usually have some blooming most of the summer. Zone 5.

Poppy seedlings are very delicate and much crowded due to the small seed size. All that is required is one plant, and if they are not crowded one plant produces many flowers. One never knows what to expect in flowers, until they bloom. I am always thinning them to about one foot from each other.
