Planted some Siberian Poppy seeds (Papaver bracteatum) last year and now they are blooming nicely.
Have been having them for the past ten years.
The blooms are colored white, yellow, or orange.
Why orange? Siberian poppy comes in many colors – white, yellow, red. But for some reason only the orange ones are able to make it through the winter.
Do not know why but now all the ones I have are orange. Only in the autumn the colors are many due to the seeds I have added in the spring.
This year I have added many other poppy varieties. Hopefully those will bloom in the autumn. Just have to wait and see.
