  1. These are stunningly beautiful! We're new to growing poppies here in NC, but ours are done for the year as the heat as burned them out entirely. We grew Iceland Poppies Red Sails. Would you mind sharing what kind these are? The doubles' ruffles, and that white and pink, are gorgeous!!!

  2. thank you! these are double shirley poppies. they are beautiful, but i haven't yet figured out how to condition them. flame and warm water has been a failure, as they shatter within a day. let me know if you have a solution......then again, there is something beautiful about their being so ephemeral. i love watching them flutter in the breeze....
