What do you think of these poppies? They look more like peonies to me! I missed the blooming of my peony while I was in California. I have been waiting for five years for that thing to finally get big enough to bloom. Wouldn't you know it happens while I am out! I started it from a root. All I can say is slow and painful. This poppy reseeds itself in my garden in random places. I was looking for the bright orange variety and ended up with this very pink carnation looking one. I'll try to seed for the orange ones this fall. In the meantime, I will enjoy this one with its carnation like flower and sleepy seed pods.
