The color is truly amazing and the blooms do last much longer than other poppies.

Sadly they don't grow well here. I've seen cornflowers used to substitute for the blue

This is not a plant commonly seen here in Nova Scotia (Canada) either, but I have had it for the past 3 years and cross my fingers that it will survive the winter once more. I gave a plant to my next door neighbour who has a real gift for gardening ,so we are anxiously waiting to see how it fairs out too.

I got this plant from a nursery as I've heard that it is tricky starting them from seed.
